Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1955" and ∠1931".

Beaver Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2030 after 13 days on 10 November 2030 at 03:30.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 381 / 1334

At 20:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 381 of Meeus index or 1334 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.44 days

29 days, 10 hours and 30 minutes is the length of new lunation 381. It is 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 382 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠332.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠332.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠349.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon before perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 16 October 2030 at 13:21 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 October 2030 at 12:07 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 366 578 km

Moon is 366 578 km (227 781 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 122 km (224 391 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 15 October 2030 at 13:20 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 29 October 2030 at 03:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 16 October 2030 at 09:43 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.995°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.941° in the next southern standstill on 29 October 2030 at 20:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
