Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 16 November 2058 at 03:09.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1971"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1943".

Beaver Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2058 after 8 days on 30 November 2058 at 03:17.

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 728 / 1681

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 728 of Meeus index or 1681 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.54 days

Length of current 728 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes longer than next lunation 729 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠294°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠294°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠321.5°. 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

1 day after point of perigee on 20 November 2058 at 22:40 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 December 2058 at 07:43 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 591 km

Moon is 363 591 km (225 925 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 781 km (251 519 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 16 November 2058 at 23:56 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 November 2058 at 23:07 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 19 November 2058 at 09:59 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.009°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.007° in the next northern standstill on 2 December 2058 at 15:32 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 30 November 2058 at 03:17 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
