Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 4 January 2064 at 09:31.

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 in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2064 after 25 days on 2 February 2064 at 21:37.

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 791 / 1744

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 791 of Meeus index or 1744 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.69 days

Length of current 791 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 792 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠88.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠88.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠125.9°. 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 7 January 2064 at 03:30 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 January 2064 at 05:31 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 363 394 km

Moon is 363 394 km (225 803 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 424 km (251 919 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 7 January 2064 at 06:27 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 January 2064 at 17:11 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 3 January 2064 at 00:55 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.781°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.815° in the next southern standstill on 15 January 2064 at 20:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 18 January 2064 at 12:37 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
