Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 5 October 2057 at 13:13.

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 ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1935"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1935" and ∠1921".

Hunter Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2057 after 4 days on 12 October 2057 at 15:01.

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 714 / 1667

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 714 of Meeus index or 1667 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.47 days

Length of current 714 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 19 minutes. It is 16 minutes longer than next lunation 715 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 25 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 44 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠291.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠291.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠318.8°. 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 perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 3 October 2057 at 19:39 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 October 2057 at 22:29 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 370 420 km

Moon is 370 420 km (230 168 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 515 km (251 354 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 4 October 2057 at 10:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, 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 17 October 2057 at 23:41 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 5 October 2057 at 10:40 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.184°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.312° in the next northern standstill on 19 October 2057 at 06:50 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 12 October 2057 at 15:01 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
