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.

Lunation 1200 / 2153

The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1200 of Meeus index or 2153 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.7 days

Length of current 1200 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 49 minutes. It is 2 hours and 41 minutes longer than next lunation 1201 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠222.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠222.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠257.9°. 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

3 days after point of apogee on 6 February 2097 at 09:39 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 22 February 2097 at 00:22 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 401 467 km

Moon is 401 467 km (249 460 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 662 km (229 076 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 4 February 2097 at 07:36 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 February 2097 at 08:27 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 8 February 2097 at 13:18 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.061°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.174° in the next northern standstill on 22 February 2097 at 00:30 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 12 February 2097 at 07:49 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
