Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 10 November 2030 at 03:30.

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 ∠21° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1783"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1783" and ∠1940".

Beaver Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2030 after 24 days on 9 December 2030 at 22:40.

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 381 / 1334

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 13 November 2030 at 05:00 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 November 2030 at 21:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 402 094 km

Moon is 402 094 km (249 850 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 521 km (222 153 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 11 November 2030 at 18:45 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 November 2030 at 13:32 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

17 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

2 days after previous North standstill on 12 November 2030 at 16:17 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.904°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.903° in the next southern standstill on 26 November 2030 at 06:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 25 November 2030 at 06:46 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
