Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 11 October 2066 at 09:43.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1785"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1785" and ∠1924".

Beaver Moon after 19 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2066 after 19 days on 2 November 2066 at 02:13.

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 825 / 1778

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 825 of Meeus index or 1778 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.5 days

Length of current 825 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 55 minutes. It is 32 minutes longer than next lunation 826 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠272.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠272.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠304.7°. 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 10 October 2066 at 18:32 in ♋ Cancer. 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 22 October 2066 at 18:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 401 658 km

Moon is 401 658 km (249 579 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 509 km (228 360 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 10 October 2066 at 02:19 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 October 2066 at 16:14 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 8 October 2066 at 22:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.153°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.054° in the next southern standstill on 22 October 2066 at 18:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 19 October 2066 at 01:42 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
