Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 24 October 2058 at 17:16.

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 leaving the last ∠3° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♓ Pisces later.

Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1931".

Hunter Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2058 after 5 days on 31 October 2058 at 12:54.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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

14 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 October 2058 at 04:18 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 647 km

Moon is 363 647 km (225 960 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 573 km (229 021 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days 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 7 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

20 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 23 October 2058 at 03:57 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.927°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.986° in the next northern standstill on 5 November 2058 at 06:51 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 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.
