Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 16 January 2037 at 09:34.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon is entering ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1950".

Wolf Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2037 after 12 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 458 / 1411

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 458 of Meeus index or 1411 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.81 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 20 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2037. It is 38 minutes longer 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 6 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 27 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠146.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠146.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠173.2°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 17:43. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 3 January 2037 at 21:29 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 1 February 2037 at 06:58 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 033 km

This apogee Moon is 406 033 km (252 297 mi) away from Earth. It is 625 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 676 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

2 days after descending node on 17 January 2037 at 08:20 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 31 January 2037 at 07:43 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 15 January 2037 at 03:02 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.586°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.575° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 January 2037 at 12:23 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 31 January 2037 at 14:04 in ♌ Leo 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.
