Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

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 940 / 1893

The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 940 of Meeus index or 1893 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 940 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 47 minutes. It is 24 minutes longer than next lunation 941 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 57 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 12 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠354°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠9.4°. 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 before perigee

13 days after point of apogee on 20 January 2076 at 21:24 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 February 2076 at 07:52 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 347 km

Moon is 363 347 km (225 773 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 345 km (222 044 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 2 February 2076 at 04:01 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 February 2076 at 04:47 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 2 February 2076 at 15:14 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.547°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.589° in the next northern standstill on 15 February 2076 at 19:53 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 4 February 2076 at 21:01 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
