Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 5 November 2025 at 13:19.

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 ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1957"

Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1957" and ∠1937".

Beaver Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2025 after 26 days on 4 December 2025 at 23:14.

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 319 / 1272

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 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 after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 5 November 2025 at 22:29 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 November 2025 at 02:48 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 366 211 km

Moon is 366 211 km (227 553 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 693 km (252 707 mi).

Moon before descending node

6 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 5 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

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

Moon in northern standstill

At 11:41 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.387°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.295° in its southern standstill point on 22 November 2025 at 18:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 20 November 2025 at 06:47 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
