Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 23 November 2060 at 04:16.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1839"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1839" and ∠1945".

Cold Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2060 after 10 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 753 / 1706

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 753 of Meeus index or 1706 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.77 days

Length of current 753 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 24 minutes. It is 1 hour and 47 minutes longer than next lunation 754 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 40 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 23 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠199.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠199.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠228.7°. 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 apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 21 November 2060 at 01:49 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 December 2060 at 09:57 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 389 745 km

Moon is 389 745 km (242 176 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 223 km (223 211 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 20 November 2060 at 10:05 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 December 2060 at 10:07 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 25 November 2060 at 22:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.046°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.011° in the next northern standstill on 8 December 2060 at 20:39 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 7 December 2060 at 14:48 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
