Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 22 October 2052 at 15:03.

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 leaving the last ∠2° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1771"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1931".

Beaver Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2052 after 10 days on 6 November 2052 at 21:09.

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 653 / 1606

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 653 of Meeus index or 1606 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.75 days

Length of current 653 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 59 minutes. It is 1 hour and 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 654 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 15 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠138.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠138.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠165.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 26 October 2052 at 13:06 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 November 2052 at 21:03 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 677 km

Moon is 404 677 km (251 455 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 409 km (222 705 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after its ascending node on 20 October 2052 at 15:02 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 November 2052 at 03:03 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon in southern standstill

At 13:19 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.228°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.287° in its northern standstill point on 9 November 2052 at 18:39 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 6 November 2052 at 21:09 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
