Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 6 February 2069 at 05:29.

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 ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1781"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1781" and ∠1945".

Snow Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2069 after 27 days on 7 March 2069 at 22:35.

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 854 / 1807

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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

13 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 2 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 402 433 km

Moon is 402 433 km (250 060 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 051 km (251 687 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 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 5 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

21 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

6 days after previous North standstill on 1 February 2069 at 18:36 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.473°. Next 7 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 13 days

After 13 days on 21 February 2069 at 15:17 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
