Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 6 November 2063 at 05:22.

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 in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Beaver Moon before 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2063 after 23 days on 5 December 2063 at 20:06.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 789 / 1742

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 789 of Meeus index or 1742 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.47 days

Length of current 789 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 23 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 790 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 48 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠31.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠31.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠55.4°. 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 before perigee

11 days after point of apogee on 31 October 2063 at 16:27 in ♓ Pisces. 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 16 November 2063 at 13:06 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 366 577 km

Moon is 366 577 km (227 780 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 684 km (228 468 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 31 October 2063 at 07:08 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 November 2063 at 02:41 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 9 November 2063 at 09:36 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.872°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.805° in the next southern standstill on 22 November 2063 at 06:16 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 20 November 2063 at 06:09 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
