Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 7 November 2054 at 08:34.

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.

Synodic month length 29.52 days

Length of current 678 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 679 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠44°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠44°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠72.4°. 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 8 November 2054 at 19:52 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 November 2054 at 15:48 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 387 km

Moon is 405 387 km (251 896 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 009 km (229 913 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 8 November 2054 at 04:08 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 November 2054 at 22:10 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 4 November 2054 at 07:53 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.520°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.632° in the next northern standstill on 18 November 2054 at 17:11 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 15 November 2054 at 08:49 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
