Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 9 November 2005 at 01:57.

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 ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1969"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1938".

Beaver Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2005 after 5 days on 16 November 2005 at 00:58.

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 72 / 1025

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 72 of Meeus index or 1025 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.57 days

Length of current 72 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 36 minutes. It is 1 hour and 25 minutes longer than next lunation 73 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 52 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 11 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠273.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠273.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠306.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 00:15, this is 14 days after last apogee on 26 October 2005 at 09:34 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 23 November 2005 at 06:17 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 370 014 km

This perigee Moon is 370 014 km (229 916 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2005. It is 7 506 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 342 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 31 October 2005 at 00:32 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 November 2005 at 02:02 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 5 November 2005 at 22:03 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.529°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.471° in the next northern standstill on 18 November 2005 at 23:39 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 16 November 2005 at 00:58 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
