Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 8 December 2064 at 06:28.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon is entering ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1860"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1860" and ∠1949".

Cold Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2064 after 12 days on 23 December 2064 at 18:14.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 803 / 1756

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 803 of Meeus index or 1756 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.53 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 46 minutes. It is 2 hours and 1 minute 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 2 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 7 hours and 1 minute shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠33°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠33°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠57.9°.

Moon after perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 6 December 2064 at 06:12 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 18 December 2064 at 01:06 in ♈ Aries.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 385 353 km

The Moon is 385 353 km (239 447 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 936 km (251 616 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 21:17 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 26 December 2064 at 08:47 in ♌ Leo.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 21:17 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 8 December 2064 at 15:21 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.787°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.786° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 December 2064 at 22:07 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 23 December 2064 at 18:14 in ♊ Gemini 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.
