Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1931" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2077 after 13 days on 9 January 2077 at 04:37.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

At 00:53 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 952 of Meeus index or 1905 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.49 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 31 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 52 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 17 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠319.3°

The true anomaly is ∠319.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠339.5°.

Moon before apogee

9 days after point of apogee on 16 December 2076 at 20:13 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 28 December 2076 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 371 267 km

The Moon is 371 267 km (230 695 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 434 km (226 449 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 24 December 2076 at 18:18 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 6 January 2077 at 14:25 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 10:19 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-25.094°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠25.079° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 8 January 2077 at 11:32.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
