Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 29 October 2025 at 16:21.

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 ♈ Aries

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♉ Taurus later.

Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1935".

Beaver Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2025 after 1 day on 5 November 2025 at 13:19.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 319 / 1272

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 319 of Meeus index or 1272 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.77 days

Length of current 319 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 22 minutes. It is 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 320 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 38 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 25 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠156.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠181.4°. 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 before perigee

11 days after point of apogee on 23 October 2025 at 23:31 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 5 November 2025 at 22:29 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 365 318 km

Moon is 365 318 km (226 998 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 833 km (221 726 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 1 November 2025 at 17:46 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 November 2025 at 06:38 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 26 October 2025 at 12:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.457°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.387° in the next northern standstill on 8 November 2025 at 11:41 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 5 November 2025 at 13:19 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
