Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 16 September 2037 at 10:36.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon is entering ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1811"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1811" and ∠1911".

Harvest Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2037 after 4 days on 24 September 2037 at 11:32.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 466 / 1419

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 466 of Meeus index or 1419 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.34 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 20 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 35 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 34 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠354.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠354.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠9.6°.

Moon before perigee

9 days after point of perigee on 10 September 2037 at 02:13 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 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 24 September 2037 at 03:44 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 395 825 km

The Moon is 395 825 km (245 954 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 418 km (252 536 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 02:02 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 3 October 2037 at 15:23 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 17 September 2037 at 19:36 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.547°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.695° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 October 2037 at 13:57 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 24 September 2037 at 11:32 in ♈ Aries 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.
