Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 20 January 2055 at 03:24.

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 ∠10° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Synodic month length 29.74 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 47 minutes. It is 1 hour and 13 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 5 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠109.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠109.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠143.9°.

Moon before perigee

10 days after point of perigee on 15 January 2055 at 09:13 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 31 January 2055 at 06:49 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 392 916 km

The Moon is 392 916 km (244 147 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 942 km (252 241 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after ascending node on 15 January 2055 at 05:53 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 28 January 2055 at 16:32 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 10:36 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-19.724°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠19.711° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 8 February 2055 at 23:45.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 27 January 2055 at 17:39 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.
