Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 23 December 2064 at 18:14.

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 ∠5° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1933"

Lunar disc appears visually 1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1933" and ∠1951".

Cold Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2065 after 24 days on 22 January 2065 at 09:53.

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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 803 of Meeus index or 1756 from Brown series.

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 before apogee

10 days after point of apogee on 18 December 2064 at 01:06 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 2 January 2065 at 20:34 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 370 905 km

The Moon is 370 905 km (230 470 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 142 km (228 753 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after descending node on 26 December 2064 at 08:47 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 January 2065 at 05:38 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

16 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 22 December 2064 at 22:07 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.786°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.815° at the point of next southern standstill on 5 January 2065 at 00:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 6 January 2065 at 19:15 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
