Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 20 November 2025 at 06:47.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1806"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1806" and ∠1944".

Cold Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2025 after 10 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 320 / 1273

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 320 of Meeus index or 1273 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.79 days

Length of current 320 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 56 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2025. It is 47 minutes longer than next lunation 321 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 12 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 51 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠181.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠181.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠207°. 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 apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 20 November 2025 at 02:48 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 4 December 2025 at 11:06 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 396 978 km

Moon is 396 978 km (246 671 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 962 km (221 806 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 14 November 2025 at 06:38 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 November 2025 at 21:33 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 22 November 2025 at 18:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.295°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.263° in the next northern standstill on 5 December 2025 at 21:51 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 4 December 2025 at 23:14 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
