Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 3 November 2051 at 14:59.

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 ∠15° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1794"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1794" and ∠1936".

Beaver Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2051 after 11 days on 18 November 2051 at 05:06.

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 641 / 1594

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 641 of Meeus index or 1594 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.78 days

Length of current 641 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 38 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2051. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer than next lunation 642 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠187.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠187.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠214.3°. 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

3 days after point of apogee on 2 November 2051 at 17:22 in ♎ Libra. 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 17 November 2051 at 10:55 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 399 521 km

Moon is 399 521 km (248 251 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 776 km (222 312 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after its ascending node on 2 November 2051 at 03:14 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 November 2051 at 01:34 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

13 days after previous North standstill on 23 October 2051 at 15:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.671°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.703° in the next southern standstill on 7 November 2051 at 04:46 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 18 November 2051 at 05:06 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
