Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 17 December 2089 at 15:37.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1958"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1958" and ∠1950".

Cold Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2090 after 27 days on 16 January 2090 at 03:02.

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 1112 / 2065

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 1112 of Meeus index or 2065 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.7 days

Length of current 1112 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 45 minutes. It is 1 hour and 52 minutes shorter than next lunation 1113 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠99°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠99°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠135.1°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 22:47, this is 11 days after last apogee on 8 December 2089 at 04:46 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 4 January 2090 at 23:25 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 363 543 km

This perigee Moon is 363 543 km (225 895 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 035 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 813 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 11 December 2089 at 15:27 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 December 2089 at 10:45 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 17 December 2089 at 19:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.446°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.450° in the next southern standstill on 30 December 2089 at 21:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 31 December 2089 at 19:57 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
