Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 31 January 2037 at 14:04.

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 ♌ Leo

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♍ Virgo later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1947".

Wolf Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2037 after 28 days on 2 March 2037 at 00:28.

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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 458 of Meeus index or 1411 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 perigee

Moon is at perigee at 06:58. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 19 January 2037 at 17:43 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 15 February 2037 at 23:45 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 357 596 km

This perigee Moon is 357 596 km (222 200 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 912 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 760 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 31 January 2037 at 07:43 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 13 February 2037 at 14:49 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

2 days since the previous standstill on 29 January 2037 at 12:23 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.575°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.580° at the point of next southern standstill on 11 February 2037 at 08:55 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 15 February 2037 at 04:54 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.
