Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 26 January 2049 at 21:33.

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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1963"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1948".

Snow Moon after 19 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2049 after 19 days on 17 February 2049 at 20:47.

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 606 / 1559

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 606 of Meeus index or 1559 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.45 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 51 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2049. It is 5 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 53 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 16 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠3.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠3.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠20°.

Moon before apogee

12 days after point of apogee on 17 January 2049 at 00:48 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 February 2049 at 08:51 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 365 221 km

The Moon is 365 221 km (226 938 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 256 km (223 231 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 17:52 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 11 February 2049 at 17:32 in ♊ Gemini.

New draconic month

At 17:52 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon at southern standstill

At 19:42 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-22.806°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠22.719° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 11 February 2049 at 21:45.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 2 February 2049 at 13:16 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.
