Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 6 November 2029 at 04:24.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon is entering ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1963"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1937".

Beaver Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2029 after 13 days on 21 November 2029 at 04:03.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

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 369 / 1322

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 369 of Meeus index or 1322 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.44 days

Length of current 369 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 370 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 53 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠3.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠3.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠19.9°. 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

1 day after point of perigee on 5 November 2029 at 23:09 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 19 November 2029 at 02:53 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 365 175 km

Moon is 365 175 km (226 909 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 241 km (252 426 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 November 2029 at 23:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 26 October 2029 at 12:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.659°. Next day 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.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 21 November 2029 at 04:03 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
