Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 18 November 2030 at 08:32.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1903"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1903" and ∠1943".

Cold Moon after 18 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2030 after 18 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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 perigee

8 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 4 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 376 741 km

Moon is 376 741 km (234 096 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 521 km (222 153 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 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 4 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

23 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

8 days after previous North standstill on 12 November 2030 at 16:17 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.904°. Next 4 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 3 days

After 3 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.
