Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 8 November 2045 at 21:49.

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 passing about ∠22° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1832"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1832" and ∠1939".

Beaver Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2045 after 12 days on 24 November 2045 at 11:43.

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 567 / 1520

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 567 of Meeus index or 1520 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.58 days

Length of current 567 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 52 minutes. It is 2 hours and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 568 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠58.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠58.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠92.2°. 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

6 days after point of perigee on 4 November 2045 at 21:44 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 November 2045 at 23:59 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 391 327 km

Moon is 391 327 km (243 159 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 209 km (251 164 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 2 November 2045 at 17:28 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 November 2045 at 00:56 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon in southern standstill

At 15:22 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-27.320°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠27.257° in its northern standstill point on 25 November 2045 at 23:56 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 24 November 2045 at 11:43 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
