Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 3 January 2007 at 13:57.

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 ∠15° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1777"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2007 after 24 days on 2 February 2007 at 05:45.

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 86 / 1039

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 86 of Meeus index or 1039 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.58 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 16 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 47 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠276.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠276.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠308.6°.

Moon before perigee

11 days after point of perigee on 28 December 2006 at 01:48 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 10 January 2007 at 16:26 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 403 404 km

The Moon is 403 404 km (250 664 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 335 km (251 242 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 17:44 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 22 January 2007 at 13:00 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 2 January 2007 at 11:57 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.396°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.448° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 January 2007 at 22:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 19 January 2007 at 04:01 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
