Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 21 November 2050 at 20:25.

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 ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1927"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1927" and ∠1945".

Beaver Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2050 after 1 day on 28 November 2050 at 15:09.

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 629 / 1582

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 629 of Meeus index or 1582 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.65 days

Length of current 629 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 57 minutes longer than next lunation 630 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 53 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠245°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠245°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠282.8°. 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 perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 25 November 2050 at 05:46 in ♈ Aries. 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 7 December 2050 at 02:39 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 371 923 km

Moon is 371 923 km (231 102 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 411 km (251 289 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 26 November 2050 at 21:02 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 December 2050 at 00:42 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 16 November 2050 at 17:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.791°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.809° in the next northern standstill on 29 November 2050 at 15:05 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 28 November 2050 at 15:09 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
