Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2049 after 15 days on 19 January 2049 at 02:29.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 605 / 1558

At 15:30 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 605 of Meeus index or 1558 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.45 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 54 minutes. It is 3 minutes longer 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 50 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 19 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠348.2°

The true anomaly is ∠348.2°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠3.8°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 21:03. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 21 December 2048 at 00:28 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 17 January 2049 at 00:48 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 356 820 km

This perigee Moon is 356 820 km (221 718 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2049. It is 5 688 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 395 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 2 January 2049 at 09:51 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 January 2049 at 14:48 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 2 January 2049 at 09:17 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.914°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.889° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 January 2049 at 14:32 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
