Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 25 January 2060 at 19:14.

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 is entering ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1913"

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2060 after 14 days on 16 February 2060 at 09:56.

Upcoming main Moon phases

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 742 / 1695

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 742 of Meeus index or 1695 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.53 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 53 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 7 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠297.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠297.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠323.8°.

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 23 January 2060 at 16:37 in ♎ Libra. 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 4 February 2060 at 10:39 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 374 692 km

The Moon is 374 692 km (232 823 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 348 km (225 774 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after descending node on 26 January 2060 at 11:07 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 February 2060 at 08:15 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, 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 30 January 2060 at 15:28 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.245°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.319° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 February 2060 at 09:28 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 2 February 2060 at 05:22 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.
