Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 24 November 2028 at 00:15.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Cold Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2028 after 1 day on 2 December 2028 at 01:40.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 357 / 1310

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 357 of Meeus index or 1310 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.53 days

Length of current 357 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 30 minutes shorter than next lunation 358 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠37.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠37.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠63.8°. 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 apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 26 November 2028 at 00:10 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 December 2028 at 12:44 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 397 048 km

Moon is 397 048 km (246 714 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 056 km (229 321 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 20 November 2028 at 04:34 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 December 2028 at 15:14 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 18 November 2028 at 07:22 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.208°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.180° in the next northern standstill on 2 December 2028 at 18:12 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 2 December 2028 at 01:40 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
