Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1883" and ∠1926".

Beaver Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2066 after 14 days on 2 November 2066 at 02:13.

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 825 / 1778

At 13:47 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 825 of Meeus index or 1778 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.5 days

29 days, 11 hours and 55 minutes is the length of new lunation 825. 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 before perigee

7 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 4 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 380 616 km

Moon is 380 616 km (236 504 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 509 km (228 360 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 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 5 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

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

Moon before southern standstill

9 days after previous North standstill on 8 October 2066 at 22:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.153°. Next 4 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.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
