Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 12 November 2061 at 03:40.

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 ∠6° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1797"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1797" and ∠1942".

Beaver Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2061 after 8 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 765 / 1718

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 765 of Meeus index or 1718 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.79 days

Length of current 765 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 53 minutes. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 766 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠151.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠151.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠176.8°. 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 after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 15 November 2061 at 02:30 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2061 at 19:57 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 398 916 km

Moon is 398 916 km (247 875 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 101 km (221 892 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 8 November 2061 at 21:38 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 November 2061 at 11:10 in ♈ Aries.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

22 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

2 days after previous South standstill on 15 November 2061 at 15:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.489°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.441° in the next northern standstill on 28 November 2061 at 23:49 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 27 November 2061 at 06:32 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
