Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 22 November 2037 at 21:35.

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 ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1890"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1890" and ∠1945".

Beaver Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2037 after 26 days on 22 December 2037 at 13:38.

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 468 / 1421

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 468 of Meeus index or 1421 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.48 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 35 minutes. It is 2 hours and 28 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 1 hour and 9 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠26.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠26.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠48°.

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 17 November 2037 at 21:05 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 3 December 2037 at 21:37 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 379 166 km

The Moon is 379 166 km (235 603 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 169 km (227 527 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 17:38 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 9 December 2037 at 12:36 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 17:38 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon at northern standstill

At 02:10 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.140°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.177° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 8 December 2037 at 22:32.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 6 December 2037 at 23:38 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
