Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 29 January 2069 at 21:39.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♌ Leo later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1850"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1850" and ∠1946".

Snow Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2069 after 1 day on 6 February 2069 at 05:29.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 854 / 1807

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 854 of Meeus index or 1807 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.49 days

Length of current 854 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 45 minutes longer than next lunation 855 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠310.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠310.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠332.8°. 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 before apogee

9 days after point of perigee on 26 January 2069 at 07:47 in ♓ Pisces. 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 11 February 2069 at 08:23 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 387 461 km

Moon is 387 461 km (240 757 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 051 km (251 687 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 30 January 2069 at 12:42 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 February 2069 at 15:55 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 1 February 2069 at 18:36 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.473°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.335° in the next southern standstill on 16 February 2069 at 07:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 6 February 2069 at 05:29 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
