Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 17 February 2064 at 07:03.

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 passing about ∠25° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1941".

Worm Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2064 after 12 days on 3 March 2064 at 08:19.

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 793 / 1746

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 793 of Meeus index or 1746 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.78 days

Length of current 793 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 42 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2064. It is 1 hour and 25 minutes longer than next lunation 794 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠156.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠181.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 18:41, this is 15 days after last perigee on 4 February 2064 at 06:21 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 3 March 2064 at 17:31 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 406 266 km

This apogee Moon is 406 266 km (252 442 mi) away from Earth. It is 858 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 443 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 16 February 2064 at 23:59 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 2 March 2064 at 02:40 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 12 February 2064 at 02:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.877°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.859° in the next northern standstill on 26 February 2064 at 20:13 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 3 March 2064 at 08:19 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
