Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1791"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1791" and ∠1946".

It is Cold Moon

The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 2066.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

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

Lunation 827 / 1780

The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 827 of Meeus index or 1780 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.47 days

Length of current 827 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes. It is 13 minutes longer than next lunation 828 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠328.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠328.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠346.7°. 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 apogee

12 days after point of perigee on 19 November 2066 at 10:44 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 December 2066 at 07:41 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 400 187 km

Moon is 400 187 km (248 665 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 855 km (252 187 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 19 November 2066 at 21:21 in ♐ Sagittarius, 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 3 December 2066 at 11:04 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 19 November 2066 at 02:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.944°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.924° in the next northern standstill on 2 December 2066 at 12:20 in ♊ Gemini.
