Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 3 October 2047 at 23:42.

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 ∠16° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1780"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1780" and ∠1921".

Hunter Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2047 after 24 days on 2 November 2047 at 16:58.

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 590 / 1543

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 590 of Meeus index or 1543 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 590 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 57 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2047. It is 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 591 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 22 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠329.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠329.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠346.8°. 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 apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 7 October 2047 at 08:53 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 October 2047 at 21:58 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 402 596 km

Moon is 402 596 km (250 162 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 956 km (222 424 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 27 September 2047 at 01:32 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 October 2047 at 12:21 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon in northern standstill

At 18:12 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠24.802°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-24.711° in its southern standstill point on 22 October 2047 at 17:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 19 October 2047 at 03:28 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
