Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 21 January 2061 at 15:16.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1861"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1861" and ∠1949".

Snow Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2061 after 13 days on 4 February 2061 at 15:22.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

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 755 / 1708

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 755 of Meeus index or 1708 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.59 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 15 minutes. It is 2 hours and 23 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 31 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 32 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠265.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠265.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠299.9°.

Moon after apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 15 January 2061 at 08:29 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 30 January 2061 at 14:53 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 385 067 km

The Moon is 385 067 km (239 270 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 564 km (229 636 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after descending node on 13 January 2061 at 15:27 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 27 January 2061 at 14:07 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 19 January 2061 at 10:36 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.037°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.115° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 February 2061 at 14:36 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 4 February 2061 at 15:22 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
