Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 27 October 2053 at 10:38.

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 ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Hunter Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2053 after 28 days on 25 November 2053 at 22:21.

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 665 / 1618

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 665 of Meeus index or 1618 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.58 days

Length of current 665 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 2 minutes. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 666 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠71.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠71.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠106.8°. 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 before perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 19 October 2053 at 07:14 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 31 October 2053 at 10:02 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 374 219 km

Moon is 374 219 km (232 529 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 005 km (228 668 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 23 October 2053 at 18:33 in ♓ Pisces, 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 5 November 2053 at 16:13 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 17 October 2053 at 18:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.447°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.541° in the next northern standstill on 31 October 2053 at 15:02 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 10 November 2053 at 10:55 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
