Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 28 October 2057 at 03:19.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1947"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1947" and ∠1932".

Beaver Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2057 after 12 days on 11 November 2057 at 06:24.

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 715 / 1668

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 715 of Meeus index or 1668 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.46 days

Length of current 715 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 3 minutes. It is 3 minutes longer than next lunation 716 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠318.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠318.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠339°. 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 before perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 18 October 2057 at 22:29 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 October 2057 at 17:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 368 087 km

Moon is 368 087 km (228 719 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 513 km (226 498 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 17 October 2057 at 23:41 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 31 October 2057 at 13:39 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 19 October 2057 at 06:50 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.312°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.406° in the next southern standstill on 1 November 2057 at 16:37 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 11 November 2057 at 06:24 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
