Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 6 December 2067 at 14:05.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1922"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1922" and ∠1948".

Cold Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2067 after 13 days on 20 December 2067 at 15:41.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 840 / 1793

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 840 of Meeus index or 1793 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.52 days

Length of current 840 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 27 minutes longer than next lunation 841 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 11 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 58 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠307.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠307.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠331.1°. 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

9 days after point of apogee on 28 November 2067 at 03:30 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 December 2067 at 00:36 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 373 026 km

Moon is 373 026 km (231 788 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 040 km (228 068 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 6 December 2067 at 08:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 December 2067 at 07:06 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 6 December 2067 at 20:06 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.279°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.286° in the next northern standstill on 19 December 2067 at 19:23 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 20 December 2067 at 15:41 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
