Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 5 December 2063 at 20:06.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon is entering ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1970"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1949".

Cold Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2064 after 23 days on 4 January 2064 at 09:31.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 790 / 1743

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 790 of Meeus index or 1743 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.58 days

Length of current 790 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 54 minutes. It is 2 hours and 39 minutes shorter than next lunation 791 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠55.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠55.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠88.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 13:44, this is 13 days after last apogee on 28 November 2063 at 12:23 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 6 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 17 December 2063 at 19:22 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 370 056 km

This perigee Moon is 370 056 km (229 942 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2063. It is 7 548 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 300 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 02:54 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 24 December 2063 at 11:46 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 6 December 2063 at 16:08 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.761°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.752° in the next southern standstill on 19 December 2063 at 14:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 19 December 2063 at 20:04 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
