Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1811"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1811" and ∠1949".

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2033 after 20 days on 14 February 2033 at 07:04.

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.

The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 408 of Meeus index or 1361 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.49 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 8 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠315.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠315.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠336.6°.

Moon after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 20 January 2033 at 07:04 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 February 2033 at 07:27 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 395 843 km

The Moon is 395 843 km (245 965 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 085 km (223 746 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 22 January 2033 at 23:41 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 4 February 2033 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 13 January 2033 at 00:33 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.075°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.973° at the point of next southern standstill on 27 January 2033 at 14:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 30 January 2033 at 22:00 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
