Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 13 February 2065 at 10:50.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1886"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1886" and ∠1940".

Snow Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2065 after 1 day 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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 805 of Meeus index or 1758 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 before apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 11 February 2065 at 18:57 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 February 2065 at 13:24 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 380 098 km

The Moon is 380 098 km (236 182 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 457 km (226 463 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 01:44 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 3 March 2065 at 20:26 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 15 February 2065 at 15:35 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.810°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.754° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 February 2065 at 12:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day 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.
