Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 14 October 2065 at 07:04.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1786"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1786" and ∠1928".

Hunter Moon before 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2065 after 23 days on 13 November 2065 at 00:37.

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 813 / 1766

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 813 of Meeus index or 1766 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.39 days

Length of current 813 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 24 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2065. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 814 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠327.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠327.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠345.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 17 October 2065 at 22:01 in ♉ Taurus. 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 30 October 2065 at 08:37 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 401 427 km

Moon is 401 427 km (249 435 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 206 km (222 579 mi).

Moon before descending node

13 days after its ascending node on 7 October 2065 at 10:31 in ♑ Capricorn, 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 21 October 2065 at 20:40 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 19 October 2065 at 05:51 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.664°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.584° in the next southern standstill on 1 November 2065 at 09:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 29 October 2065 at 11:48 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
