Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 11 August 2037 at 10:41.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1968"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1894".

Sturgeon Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2037 after 13 days on 25 August 2037 at 19:09.

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 465 / 1418

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 465 of Meeus index or 1418 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.32 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2037. It is 25 minutes shorter 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 5 hours shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠338.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠338.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠354.5°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 17:37. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 31 July 2037 at 12:33 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 28 August 2037 at 00:28 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 359 796 km

This perigee Moon is 359 796 km (223 567 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 712 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 560 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

2 days after ascending node on 10 August 2037 at 01:40 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 22 August 2037 at 23:10 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 8 August 2037 at 21:01 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.369°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.390° at the point of next southern standstill on 21 August 2037 at 14:16 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 25 August 2037 at 19:09 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
