Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 13 November 2069 at 22:38.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1839"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1839" and ∠1942".

Beaver Moon after 9 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2069 after 9 days on 28 November 2069 at 13:46.

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 864 / 1817

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 864 of Meeus index or 1817 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.79 days

Length of current 864 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2069. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes longer than next lunation 865 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠185.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠185.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠211.5°. 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

6 days after point of apogee on 13 November 2069 at 07:36 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2069 at 21:53 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 389 839 km

Moon is 389 839 km (242 235 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 487 km (222 132 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 12 November 2069 at 11:24 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 November 2069 at 10:32 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 16 November 2069 at 09:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.293°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.315° in the next northern standstill on 29 November 2069 at 13:04 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 28 November 2069 at 13:46 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
