Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 1 November 2060 at 10:56.

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 ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1921"

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

Beaver Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2060 after 4 days on 8 November 2060 at 04:17.

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 752 / 1705

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 752 of Meeus index or 1705 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.78 days

Length of current 752 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 50 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2060. It is 26 minutes longer than next lunation 753 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 6 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 57 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠174.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠174.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠199.1°. 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 25 October 2060 at 00:25 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 November 2060 at 22:11 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 373 181 km

Moon is 373 181 km (231 884 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 812 km (221 713 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 24 October 2060 at 04:14 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 November 2060 at 00:56 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 29 October 2060 at 17:05 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.126°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.098° in the next northern standstill on 11 November 2060 at 10:15 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 8 November 2060 at 04:17 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
