Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 9 January 2077 at 04:37.

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 ∠23° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1771"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2077 after 24 days on 7 February 2077 at 23:08.

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 952 / 1905

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 952 of Meeus index or 1905 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.49 days

Length of current 952 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 31 minutes longer than next lunation 953 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠319.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠319.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠339.5°. 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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 13 January 2077 at 15:13 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 January 2077 at 18:01 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 746 km

Moon is 404 746 km (251 498 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 336 km (223 281 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 6 January 2077 at 14:25 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 January 2077 at 03:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 8 January 2077 at 11:32 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.079°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.115° in the next southern standstill on 22 January 2077 at 20:40 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 24 January 2077 at 12:45 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
