Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Moonrise and moonset

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

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2064 after 12 days on 23 December 2064 at 18:14.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 803 / 1756

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 803 of Meeus index or 1756 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.53 days

Length of current 803 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 46 minutes. It is 2 hours and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 804 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 7 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠33°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠33°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠57.9°. 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

5 days after point of perigee on 6 December 2064 at 06:12 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 December 2064 at 01:06 in ♈ Aries.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 385 353 km

Moon is 385 353 km (239 447 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 936 km (251 616 mi).

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 8 December 2064 at 15:21 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.787°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.786° in the next northern standstill on 22 December 2064 at 22:07 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 23 December 2064 at 18:14 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
