Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1902"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1902" and ∠1933".

Hunter Moon before 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2037 after 23 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 20 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 before apogee

9 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 6 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 376 915 km

The Moon is 376 915 km (234 204 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 791 km (224 185 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 16:21 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 12 November 2037 at 05:59 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 16:21 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 29 October 2037 at 20:04 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.956°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.049° at the point of next southern standstill on 11 November 2037 at 11:53 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 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.
