Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 14 November 2027 at 03:26.

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 passing about ∠24° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1931"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1931" and ∠1940".

Beaver Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2027 after 27 days on 13 December 2027 at 16:09.

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 344 / 1297

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 344 of Meeus index or 1297 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.58 days

Length of current 344 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 48 minutes. It is 3 hours shorter than next lunation 345 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠61.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠61.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠96°. 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 perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 6 November 2027 at 11:37 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2027 at 00:10 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 371 134 km

Moon is 371 134 km (230 612 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 356 km (229 507 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 5 November 2027 at 16:54 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 November 2027 at 08:34 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon in northern standstill

At 07:40 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠26.619°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-26.574° in its southern standstill point on 29 November 2027 at 09:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 28 November 2027 at 03:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
