Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 20 December 2067 at 15:41.

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 ∠10° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1951".

Cold Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2068 after 23 days on 19 January 2068 at 09:45.

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 840 / 1793

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 840 of Meeus index or 1793 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 25 December 2067 at 23:56 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 January 2068 at 20:29 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 175 km

The Moon is 405 175 km (251 764 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 414 km (224 572 mi).

Moon after descending node

7 days after descending node on 19 December 2067 at 07:06 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 2 January 2068 at 18:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 19 December 2067 at 19:23 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.286°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.264° at the point of next southern standstill on 3 January 2068 at 06:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 5 January 2068 at 02:38 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.
