Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 13 December 2067 at 08:38.

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 ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1842"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1842" and ∠1950".

Cold Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2067 after 1 day on 20 December 2067 at 15:41.

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 840 / 1793

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 840 of Meeus index or 1793 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.52 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 27 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 11 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠307.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠307.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠331.1°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 17 December 2067 at 18:55 in ♉ Taurus. 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 25 December 2067 at 23:56 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 389 062 km

The Moon is 389 062 km (241 752 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 164 km (251 757 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 07:06 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 2 January 2068 at 18:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 19:23 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.286°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.264° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 3 January 2068 at 06:48.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 20 December 2067 at 15:41 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.
