Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 9 November 2039 at 03:46.

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 ♏ Scorpio

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

Apparent angular diameter ∠1946"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1946" and ∠1940".

Beaver Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2039 after 15 days on 30 November 2039 at 16:49.

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 492 / 1445

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 492 of Meeus index or 1445 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.44 days

Length of current 492 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 37 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2039. It is 9 minutes shorter than next lunation 493 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 7 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 2 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠321.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠321.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠340.7°. 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 5 November 2039 at 04:29 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 17 November 2039 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 368 335 km

Moon is 368 335 km (228 873 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 171 km (223 179 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 3 November 2039 at 19:55 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 November 2039 at 12:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

9 days after previous North standstill on 6 November 2039 at 03:44 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.428°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.460° in the next southern standstill on 19 November 2039 at 08:56 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 16 November 2039 at 05:46 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
