Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 30 December 2064 at 23:50.

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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1957"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1957" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 18 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2065 after 18 days on 22 January 2065 at 09:53.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 2 January 2065 at 20:34 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 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 14 January 2065 at 21:51 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 366 208 km

The Moon is 366 208 km (227 551 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 429 km (251 301 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after descending node on 26 December 2064 at 08:47 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 January 2065 at 05:38 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon before southern standstill

11 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 day 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 3 days

In 3 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.
