Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 24 October 2037 at 04:36.

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 ♉ Taurus

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♊ Gemini later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1814"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1814" and ∠1931".

Hunter Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2037 after 27 days on 22 November 2037 at 21:35.

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 467 / 1420

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 467 of Meeus index or 1420 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 29 minutes. It is 2 hours and 6 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 3 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 54 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠9.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠9.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠26.3°.

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 21 October 2037 at 07:33 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 5 November 2037 at 22:15 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 395 163 km

The Moon is 395 163 km (245 543 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 791 km (224 185 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after descending node on 16 October 2037 at 03:12 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 30 October 2037 at 16:21 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

22 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 before northern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 15 October 2037 at 02:33 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.804°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.956° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 October 2037 at 20:04 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 7 November 2037 at 12:03 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
