Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 4 August 2037 at 07:51.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Synodic month length 29.34 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 10 minutes. It is 26 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 4 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 35 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠318.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠318.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠338.4°.

Moon before apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 31 July 2037 at 12:33 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 12 August 2037 at 17:37 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 378 199 km

The Moon is 378 199 km (235 002 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 796 km (223 567 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after descending node on 26 July 2037 at 17:23 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 10 August 2037 at 01:40 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

25 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 at northern standstill

At 21:01 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠21.369°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-21.390° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 21 August 2037 at 14:16.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 11 August 2037 at 10:41 in ♌ Leo 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.
