Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 22 December 2037 at 13:38.

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 ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1969"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1951".

Cold Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2038 after 23 days on 21 January 2038 at 04:00.

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 469 / 1422

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 469 of Meeus index or 1422 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.59 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 3 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 44 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠48°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠48°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠79.2°.

Moon before apogee

12 days after point of apogee on 15 December 2037 at 16:34 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 29 December 2037 at 18:48 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 364 080 km

The Moon is 364 080 km (226 229 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 370 285 km (230 084 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after ascending node on 23 December 2037 at 22:59 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 5 January 2038 at 21:32 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 23 December 2037 at 09:44 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.193°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.189° at the point of next southern standstill on 5 January 2038 at 08:13 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 5 January 2038 at 13:41 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
