Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1891"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1891" and ∠1918".

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2037 after 21 days on 24 October 2037 at 04:36.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 24 September 2037 at 03:44 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 8 October 2037 at 13:04 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 379 120 km

The Moon is 379 120 km (235 574 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 513 km (222 148 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after descending node on 19 September 2037 at 02:02 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 3 October 2037 at 15:23 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

26 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 13:57 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠21.695°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-21.804° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 15 October 2037 at 02:33.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 9 October 2037 at 02:34 in ♎ Libra 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.
