Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 6 February 2086 at 22:30.

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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1855"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1855" and ∠1945".

Snow Moon after 20 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2086 after 20 days on 28 February 2086 at 12:21.

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 1064 / 2017

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1064 of Meeus index or 2017 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.46 days

Length of current 1064 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 3 minutes. 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

6 days after point of apogee on 2 February 2086 at 04:51 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 February 2086 at 16:44 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 386 346 km

Moon is 386 346 km (240 064 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 829 km (222 345 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 25 January 2086 at 20:34 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 February 2086 at 10:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

13 days after previous North standstill on 25 January 2086 at 13:48 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.242°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.132° in the next southern standstill on 9 February 2086 at 06:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 13 February 2086 at 22:27 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
