Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 29 May 2037 at 04:24.

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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1853"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1853" and ∠1892".

Flower Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2037 after 28 days on 27 June 2037 at 15:20.

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 462 / 1415

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 462 of Meeus index or 1415 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.47 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 54 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 28 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 41 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠258.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠258.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠292.3°.

Moon after perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 24 May 2037 at 14:45 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 6 June 2037 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 386 845 km

The Moon is 386 845 km (240 374 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 141 km (251 122 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after ascending node on 20 May 2037 at 03:56 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 2 June 2037 at 03:23 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 18 May 2037 at 17:58 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.268°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-21.325° at the point of next southern standstill on 31 May 2037 at 16:34 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 14 days

In 14 days on 13 June 2037 at 17:10 in ♊ Gemini 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.
