Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

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.

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2026 after 24 days on 24 December 2026 at 01:28.

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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 25 November 2026 at 20:58 in ♊ Gemini. 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 11 December 2026 at 06:46 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 366 890 km

Moon is 366 890 km (227 975 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 421 km (252 538 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 17 November 2026 at 11:49 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 30 November 2026 at 03:34 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 26 November 2026 at 02:01 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.645°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.602° in the next southern standstill on 9 December 2026 at 15:27 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 9 December 2026 at 00:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
