Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 10 November 2011 at 20:16.

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 is entering ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1828"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1828" and ∠1940".

Beaver Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2011 after 26 days on 10 December 2011 at 14:36.

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 146 / 1099

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 146 of Meeus index or 1099 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.43 days

Length of current 146 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 14 minutes. It is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 147 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 30 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 39 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠5.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠5.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠21.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 8 November 2011 at 13:20 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 November 2011 at 23:24 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 392 100 km

Moon is 392 100 km (243 640 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 692 km (223 502 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 13 November 2011 at 00:35 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 November 2011 at 01:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 13 November 2011 at 07:23 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.558°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.552° in the next southern standstill on 26 November 2011 at 06:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 25 November 2011 at 06:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
