Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2067 after 21 days on 22 October 2067 at 10:56.

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 837 / 1790

The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 837 of Meeus index or 1790 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 837 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 19 minutes. It is 33 minutes longer than next lunation 838 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 28 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠207.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠207.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠237.7°. 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

9 days after point of perigee on 21 September 2067 at 11:31 in ♓ Pisces. 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 3 October 2067 at 12:21 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 400 282 km

Moon is 400 282 km (248 724 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 262 km (251 818 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 28 September 2067 at 09:08 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 October 2067 at 20:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 28 September 2067 at 17:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.519°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.403° in the next southern standstill on 13 October 2067 at 06:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 8 October 2067 at 09:28 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
