Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 24 January 2037 at 14:55.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1935"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1935" and ∠1948".

Wolf Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2037 after 2 days on 31 January 2037 at 14:04.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 458 / 1411

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 before apogee

9 days after point of apogee on 19 January 2037 at 17:43 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 February 2037 at 06:58 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 370 354 km

The Moon is 370 354 km (230 127 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 596 km (222 200 mi).

Moon before ascending node

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

Draconic month

25 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 at northern standstill

At 12:23 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠20.575°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2037. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-20.580° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 11 February 2037 at 08:55.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 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.
