Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 18 November 2053 at 13:26.

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 ♈ Aries

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♉ Taurus later.

Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1878" and ∠1944".

Beaver Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2053 after 2 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 666 / 1619

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 666 of Meeus index or 1619 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.7 days

Length of current 666 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 45 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 667 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠106.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠106.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠141.1°. 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

7 days after point of apogee on 16 November 2053 at 03:37 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2053 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 381 738 km

Moon is 381 738 km (237 201 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 464 km (225 225 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 19 November 2053 at 23:07 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 December 2053 at 16:41 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

17 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

9 days after previous South standstill on 14 November 2053 at 03:32 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.637°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.707° in the next northern standstill on 27 November 2053 at 23:44 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 25 November 2053 at 22:21 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
