Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 16 November 2043 at 21:52.

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 ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1941".

Beaver Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2043 after 27 days on 16 December 2043 at 08:02.

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 542 / 1495

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 542 of Meeus index or 1495 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.78 days

Length of current 542 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 40 minutes. It is 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 543 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 7 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠154°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠154°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠179.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 17 November 2043 at 09:11 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 December 2043 at 17:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 564 km

Moon is 363 564 km (225 908 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 706 km (252 715 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 13 November 2043 at 02:29 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 25 November 2043 at 15:09 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 6 November 2043 at 02:22 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.556°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.494° in the next northern standstill on 19 November 2043 at 05:40 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 1 December 2043 at 14:37 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
