Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 18 January 2064 at 12:37.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♈ Aries later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1949".

Snow Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2064 after 10 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 792 / 1745

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 792 of Meeus index or 1745 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.77 days

Length of current 792 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 26 minutes. It is 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 793 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠125.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠125.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠156.8°. 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 apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 05:31, this is 16 days after last perigee on 7 January 2064 at 03:30 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 4 February 2064 at 06:21 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 405 424 km

This apogee Moon is 405 424 km (251 919 mi) away from Earth. It is 16 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 285 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 20 January 2064 at 17:11 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 February 2064 at 15:20 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

7 days after previous South standstill on 15 January 2064 at 20:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.815°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.857° in the next northern standstill on 30 January 2064 at 10:58 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 2 February 2064 at 21:37 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
