Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 5 November 2044 at 12:27.

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 leaving the last ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1966"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1937".

Beaver Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2044 after 26 days on 4 December 2044 at 23:34.

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 554 / 1507

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 554 of Meeus index or 1507 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 554 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 21 minutes. It is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 555 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 26 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠90.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠90.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠126.5°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 06:14, this is 11 days after last apogee on 27 October 2044 at 11:18 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 24 November 2044 at 06:42 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 364 997 km

This perigee Moon is 364 997 km (226 799 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 489 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 359 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 31 October 2044 at 17:08 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 November 2044 at 12:05 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

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

Moon in northern standstill

At 11:13 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.171°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.089° in its southern standstill point on 21 November 2044 at 22:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 19 November 2044 at 14:58 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
