Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 25 December 2034 at 08:54.

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 ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1926"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1926" and ∠1951".

Cold Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2035 after 27 days on 23 January 2035 at 20:16.

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 432 / 1385

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 432 of Meeus index or 1385 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.78 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 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 6 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 58 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠192.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠192.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠220.5°.

Moon after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 24 December 2034 at 10:34 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 5 January 2035 at 18:52 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 372 242 km

The Moon is 372 242 km (231 300 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 976 km (252 262 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after descending node on 18 December 2034 at 02:21 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 30 December 2034 at 13:10 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 25 December 2034 at 08:20 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.552°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.547° at the point of next southern standstill on 8 January 2035 at 08:12 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 9 January 2035 at 15:03 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.
