Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 9 January 2035 at 15:03.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1890"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1890" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 9 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2035 after 9 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 433 / 1386

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 433 of Meeus index or 1386 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.72 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 19 minutes. It is 2 hours and 32 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 4 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠220.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠220.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠255.7°.

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 5 January 2035 at 18:52 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 21 January 2035 at 18:05 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 379 208 km

The Moon is 379 208 km (235 629 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 707 km (225 376 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♓ Pisces at 03:01 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 26 January 2035 at 19:11 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 8 January 2035 at 08:12 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.547°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.494° at the point of next northern standstill on 21 January 2035 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 23 January 2035 at 20:16 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
