Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 15 November 2064 at 20:14.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1943".

Beaver Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2064 after 3 days on 24 November 2064 at 00:58.

Upcoming main Moon phases

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 802 / 1755

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 802 of Meeus index or 1755 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 802 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 44 minutes. It is 2 hours and 2 minutes shorter than next lunation 803 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠14.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠14.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠33°. 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 apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 08:27, this is 12 days after last perigee on 7 November 2064 at 22:41 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 6 December 2064 at 06:12 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 405 800 km

This apogee Moon is 405 800 km (252 152 mi) away from Earth. It is 392 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 909 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 14 November 2064 at 16:38 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 November 2064 at 05:50 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 11 November 2064 at 05:13 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.869°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.797° in the next northern standstill on 25 November 2064 at 15:41 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 24 November 2064 at 00:58 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
