Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 17 October 2058 at 13:05.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1923"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1923" and ∠1928".

Hunter Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2058 after 10 days on 31 October 2058 at 12:54.

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 727 / 1680

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 727 of Meeus index or 1680 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.59 days

Length of current 727 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 4 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes longer than next lunation 728 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 20 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 43 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠257.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠257.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠294°. 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

9 days after point of apogee on 11 October 2058 at 14:58 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 October 2058 at 04:18 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 372 785 km

Moon is 372 785 km (231 638 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 573 km (229 021 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 20 October 2058 at 17:23 in ♏ Scorpio, 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 2 November 2058 at 14:30 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 8 October 2058 at 22:15 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.830°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.927° in the next southern standstill on 23 October 2058 at 03:57 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 31 October 2058 at 12:54 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
