Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 2 February 2064 at 21:37.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1970"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1946".

Snow Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2064 after 27 days on 3 March 2064 at 08:19.

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 792 / 1745

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 792 of Meeus index or 1745 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.77 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 26 minutes. It is 16 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 42 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠125.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠125.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠156.8°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 06:21. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 23 January 2064 at 05:31 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 19 February 2064 at 18:41 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 359 865 km

This perigee Moon is 359 865 km (223 610 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 643 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 491 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 3 February 2064 at 15:20 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 16 February 2064 at 23:59 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 30 January 2064 at 10:58 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.857°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.877° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 February 2064 at 02:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 17 February 2064 at 07:03 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.
