Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1916" and ∠1949".

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2066 after 14 days on 10 February 2066 at 08:29.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 817 / 1770

At 20:14 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 817 of Meeus index or 1770 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.53 days

29 days, 12 hours and 36 minutes is the length of new lunation 817. It is 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 818 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠35.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠35.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠61.6°. 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

2 days after point of perigee on 23 January 2066 at 15:57 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 February 2066 at 09:58 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 374 076 km

Moon is 374 076 km (232 440 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 789 km (251 524 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 24 January 2066 at 14:22 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 February 2066 at 15:03 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 22 January 2066 at 16:31 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.483°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.448° in the next northern standstill on 5 February 2066 at 06:59 in ♊ Gemini.
