Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1930" and ∠1948".

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2064 after 15 days on 23 December 2064 at 18:14.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 803 / 1756

At 06:28 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 803 of Meeus index or 1756 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.53 days

29 days, 12 hours and 46 minutes is the length of new lunation 803. It is 2 hours and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 804 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 7 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠33°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠33°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠57.9°. 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 perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 6 December 2064 at 06:12 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 December 2064 at 01:06 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 371 392 km

Moon is 371 392 km (230 772 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 936 km (251 616 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 29 November 2064 at 05:50 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 December 2064 at 21:17 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon in southern standstill

At 15:21 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-26.787°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2064. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.786° in its northern standstill point on 22 December 2064 at 22:07 in ♊ Gemini.
