Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 2 November 2049 at 16:19.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1910"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1910" and ∠1937".

Beaver Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2049 after 2 days on 9 November 2049 at 15:38.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 616 / 1569

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 616 of Meeus index or 1569 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.56 days

Length of current 616 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 21 minutes. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes longer than next lunation 617 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 37 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 26 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠278.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠278.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠310.2°. 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 perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 2 November 2049 at 18:03 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 November 2049 at 15:07 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 375 291 km

Moon is 375 291 km (233 195 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 490 km (251 338 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 28 October 2049 at 15:39 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 November 2049 at 14:33 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 29 October 2049 at 23:11 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.292°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.270° in the next northern standstill on 12 November 2049 at 00:36 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 9 November 2049 at 15:38 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
