Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 27 November 2042 at 06:06.

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 ∠22° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1885"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1885" and ∠1946".

Beaver Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2042 after 26 days on 26 December 2042 at 17:43.

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 530 / 1483

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 530 of Meeus index or 1483 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.75 days

Length of current 530 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 531 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 17 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 46 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠201.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠201.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠232°. 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

4 days after point of perigee on 25 November 2042 at 22:40 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 December 2042 at 00:37 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 380 339 km

Moon is 380 339 km (236 332 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 435 km (251 926 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after its ascending node on 24 November 2042 at 01:03 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 December 2042 at 05:37 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 29 November 2042 at 03:21 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.344°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.294° in the next southern standstill on 13 December 2042 at 13:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 12 December 2042 at 14:29 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
