Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 2 November 2030 at 11:56.

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.

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♉ Taurus later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1805"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1805" and ∠1937".

Beaver Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2030 after 1 day on 10 November 2030 at 03:30.

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 381 / 1334

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 381 of Meeus index or 1334 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.44 days

Length of current 381 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 30 minutes. 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 apogee

10 days after point of perigee on 28 October 2030 at 12:07 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 November 2030 at 05:00 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 397 194 km

Moon is 397 194 km (246 805 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 993 km (252 272 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 29 October 2030 at 03:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 November 2030 at 18:45 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 29 October 2030 at 20:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.941°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.904° in the next northern standstill on 12 November 2030 at 16:17 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 10 November 2030 at 03:30 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
