Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days 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 in ♑ Capricorn

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2026 after 11 days on 24 November 2026 at 14:53.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 332 / 1285

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 332 of Meeus index or 1285 from Brown series.

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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 17:50, this is 15 days after last perigee on 28 October 2026 at 18:01 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 25 November 2026 at 20:58 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 405 619 km

This apogee Moon is 405 619 km (252 040 mi) away from Earth. It is 211 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 090 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

10 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 November 2026 at 11:49 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 12 November 2026 at 09:40 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.697°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.645° in the next northern standstill on 26 November 2026 at 02:01 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 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.
