Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 27 June 2037 at 15:20.

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 ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".

Strawberry Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2037 after 23 days on 27 July 2037 at 04:15.

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 463 / 1416

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 463 of Meeus index or 1416 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.39 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 22 minutes. It is 1 hour and 12 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 3 hours and 23 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 47 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠292.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠292.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠318.7°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 19:50. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 18 June 2037 at 16:37 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 15 July 2037 at 16:48 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 478 km

This apogee Moon is 404 478 km (251 331 mi) away from Earth. It is 930 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 231 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 29 June 2037 at 10:01 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 13 July 2037 at 15:35 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 28 June 2037 at 01:35 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.369°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.362° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 July 2037 at 10:57 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 13 July 2037 at 02:32 in ♋ Cancer 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.
