Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 28 October 2061 at 20:12.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon is entering ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1968"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1933".

Hunter Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2061 after 27 days on 27 November 2061 at 06:32.

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 764 / 1717

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 764 of Meeus index or 1717 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.71 days

Length of current 764 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 58 minutes. It is 1 hour and 55 minutes shorter than next lunation 765 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠120.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠120.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠151.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 10:28, this is 11 days after last apogee on 18 October 2061 at 11:00 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 15 November 2061 at 02:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 360 686 km

This perigee Moon is 360 686 km (224 120 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 822 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 670 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 27 October 2061 at 02:38 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 November 2061 at 21:38 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 19 October 2061 at 09:07 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.607°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.559° in the next northern standstill on 1 November 2061 at 14:48 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 12 November 2061 at 03:40 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
