Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 22 January 2065 at 09:53.

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 ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1968"

Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1948".

Wolf Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2065 after 24 days on 20 February 2065 at 23:11.

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 804 / 1757

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 804 of Meeus index or 1757 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.62 days

Length of current 804 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 47 minutes. It is 1 hour and 26 minutes shorter than next lunation 805 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠57.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠57.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠92.7°. 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 15:26, this is 12 days after last apogee on 14 January 2065 at 21:51 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 11 February 2065 at 18:57 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 369 668 km

This perigee Moon is 369 668 km (229 701 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2065. It is 7 160 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 688 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 22 January 2065 at 16:09 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 February 2065 at 14:31 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 19 January 2065 at 06:26 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.834°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.842° in the next southern standstill on 1 February 2065 at 07:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 5 February 2065 at 10:02 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
