Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 16 November 2039 at 05:46.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1941".

Beaver Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2039 after 12 days on 30 November 2039 at 16:49.

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 493 / 1446

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 493 of Meeus index or 1446 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 493 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 46 minutes. It is 7 minutes shorter than next lunation 494 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠340.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠340.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠356.9°. 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 perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 17 November 2039 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 December 2039 at 16:15 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 302 km

Moon is 363 302 km (225 745 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 245 km (252 429 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 17 November 2039 at 12:34 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 December 2039 at 02:11 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 6 November 2039 at 03:44 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.428°. Next day 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.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 30 November 2039 at 16:49 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
