Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 22 October 2029 at 09:28.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1827"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1827" and ∠1932".

Hunter Moon before 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2029 after 23 days on 21 November 2029 at 04:03.

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 368 / 1321

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 368 of Meeus index or 1321 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.38 days

Length of current 368 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 10 minutes. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 369 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 35 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠348.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠348.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠3.8°. 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

5 days after point of apogee on 23 October 2029 at 02:02 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 5 November 2029 at 23:09 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 392 260 km

Moon is 392 260 km (243 739 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 900 km (221 767 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 27 October 2029 at 05:23 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 November 2029 at 23:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 26 October 2029 at 12:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.659°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.613° in the next southern standstill on 8 November 2029 at 11:00 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 6 November 2029 at 04:24 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
