Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 23 January 2035 at 20:16.

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 ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1806"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1806" and ∠1948".

Wolf Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2035 after 23 days on 22 February 2035 at 08:54.

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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 21 January 2035 at 18:05 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 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 2 February 2035 at 12:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 396 889 km

The Moon is 396 889 km (246 615 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 000 km (251 655 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after ascending node on 26 January 2035 at 19:11 in ♍ Virgo. 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 10 February 2035 at 07:03 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 21 January 2035 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.494°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.448° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 February 2035 at 16:35 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 8 February 2035 at 08:22 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.
