Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 9 November 2026 at 07:02.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon is entering ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1785"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1785" and ∠1938".

Beaver Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2026 after 14 days on 24 November 2026 at 14:53.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

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 332 / 1285

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 332 of Meeus index or 1285 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.74 days

Length of current 332 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 50 minutes. It is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 333 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 6 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 57 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠129.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠129.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠159.4°. 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 before apogee

12 days after point of perigee on 28 October 2026 at 18:01 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 November 2026 at 17:50 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 401 466 km

Moon is 401 466 km (249 459 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 619 km (252 040 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 3 November 2026 at 03:02 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 November 2026 at 11:49 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 29 October 2026 at 17:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.795°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.697° in the next southern standstill on 12 November 2026 at 09:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 24 November 2026 at 14:53 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
