Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 25 August 2037 at 19:09.

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 ∠23° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1900".

Sturgeon Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2037 after 27 days on 24 September 2037 at 11:32.

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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 465 of Meeus index or 1418 from Brown series.

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 before perigee

14 days after point of perigee on 12 August 2037 at 17:37 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 August 2037 at 00:28 in ♈ Aries.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 486 km

The Moon is 405 486 km (251 957 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 214 km (252 410 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 22 August 2037 at 23:10 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 6 September 2037 at 10:34 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 21 August 2037 at 14:16 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.390°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.473° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 September 2037 at 06:20 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 9 September 2037 at 18:25 in ♍ Virgo 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.
