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 ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1949".

Snow Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2050 after 14 days on 6 February 2050 at 20:47.

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 619 / 1572

At 04:57 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 619 of Meeus index or 1572 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.42 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 7 minutes. It is 30 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 2 hours and 38 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 32 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠350.1°

The true anomaly is ∠350.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠5.4°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 18:50. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 11 January 2050 at 02:36 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 7 February 2050 at 06:32 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 357 295 km

This perigee Moon is 357 295 km (222 013 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 213 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 061 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

4 days after ascending node on 18 January 2050 at 17:33 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 31 January 2050 at 04:35 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 20 January 2050 at 05:15 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.179°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.106° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 February 2050 at 22:34 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.
