Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Last Quarter

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 ♍ Virgo

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2043 after 20 days on 16 December 2043 at 08:02.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Lunation 542 / 1495

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 542 of Meeus index or 1495 from Brown series.

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 before apogee

8 days 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 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 December 2043 at 17:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 19 November 2043 at 05:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.494°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.421° in the next southern standstill on 3 December 2043 at 07:43 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 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.
