Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 2 January 2037 at 02:35.

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 is entering ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2037 after 26 days on 31 January 2037 at 14:04.

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.

Lunation 457 / 1410

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 457 of Meeus index or 1410 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.75 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 20 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length longer than mean

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

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠113°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠113°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠146.7°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 3 January 2037 at 21:29 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 19 January 2037 at 17:43 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 363 309 km

The Moon is 363 309 km (225 750 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 14 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 033 km (252 297 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 3 January 2037 at 20:54 in ♌ Leo. 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 17 January 2037 at 08:20 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 2 January 2037 at 00:56 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.593°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.586° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 January 2037 at 03:02 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 16 January 2037 at 09:34 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.
