Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 14 November 2060 at 23:48.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1798"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1798" and ∠1941".

Cold Moon after 20 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2060 after 20 days on 7 December 2060 at 14:48.

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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 apogee

9 days after point of perigee on 7 November 2060 at 22:11 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 November 2060 at 01:49 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 398 615 km

Moon is 398 615 km (247 688 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 318 km (252 474 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 7 November 2060 at 00:56 in ♉ Taurus, 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 20 November 2060 at 10:05 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 11 November 2060 at 10:15 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.098°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.046° in the next southern standstill on 25 November 2060 at 22:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 23 November 2060 at 04:16 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
