Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 5 February 2065 at 10:02.

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 ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1944".

Snow Moon after 9 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2065 after 9 days on 20 February 2065 at 23:11.

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 805 / 1758

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 805 of Meeus index or 1758 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.68 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 13 minutes. It is 33 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 3 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠92.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠92.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠129.8°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 18:57. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 27 January 2065 at 15:26 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 23 February 2065 at 13:24 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 404 706 km

This apogee Moon is 404 706 km (251 473 mi) away from Earth. It is 702 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 003 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

6 days after ascending node on 4 February 2065 at 14:31 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 February 2065 at 01:44 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

6 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 1 February 2065 at 07:20 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.842°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.810° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 February 2065 at 15:35 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 20 February 2065 at 23:11 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.
