Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1939" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2086 after 14 days on 29 January 2086 at 17:49.

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 1064 / 2017

At 11:24 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1064 of Meeus index or 2017 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.46 days

29 days, 11 hours and 3 minutes is the length of new lunation 1064. It is 1 hour and 26 minutes longer than next lunation 1065 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠329.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠329.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠347°. 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 perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 5 January 2086 at 12:32 in ♍ Virgo. 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 17 January 2086 at 08:10 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 369 674 km

Moon is 369 674 km (229 705 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 912 km (224 882 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 13 January 2086 at 03:23 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 25 January 2086 at 20:34 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 12 January 2086 at 20:13 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.281°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.242° in the next northern standstill on 25 January 2086 at 13:48 in ♊ Gemini.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
