Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 2 February 2043 at 04:14.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2043 after 16 days on 23 February 2043 at 21:58.

Synodic month length 29.59 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 14 minutes. It is 2 hours and 12 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 30 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 33 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠269.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠269.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠303°.

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 1 February 2043 at 17:22 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 13 February 2043 at 17:40 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 389 963 km

The Moon is 389 963 km (242 312 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 963 km (228 642 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after descending node on 30 January 2043 at 09:53 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 13 February 2043 at 07:12 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 6 February 2043 at 04:21 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.451°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.529° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 February 2043 at 03:26 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 9 February 2043 at 21:07 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
