Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 9 November 2049 at 15:38.

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 ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1941".

Beaver Moon before 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2049 after 22 days on 9 December 2049 at 07:28.

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 616 / 1569

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 15:07, this is 13 days after last perigee on 2 November 2049 at 18:03 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 28 November 2049 at 11:08 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 490 km

This apogee Moon is 404 490 km (251 338 mi) away from Earth. It is 918 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 219 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 10 November 2049 at 14:33 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 November 2049 at 00:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 12 November 2049 at 00:36 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.270°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.274° in the next southern standstill on 26 November 2049 at 06:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 25 November 2049 at 05:35 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
