Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Moon is entering ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1817"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1817" and ∠1929".

Beaver Moon after 21 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2065 after 21 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 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 813 of Meeus index or 1766 from Brown series.

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

4 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 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 October 2065 at 08:37 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 394 408 km

Moon is 394 408 km (245 074 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 206 km (222 579 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 21 October 2065 at 20:40 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 November 2065 at 11:43 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 19 October 2065 at 05:51 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.664°. Next 9 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 6 days

After 6 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.
