Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 19 October 2070 at 18:59.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1929".

Hunter Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2070 after 25 days on 18 November 2070 at 05:40.

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 875 / 1828

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 875 of Meeus index or 1828 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.65 days

Length of current 875 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 41 minutes. It is 2 hours and 30 minutes shorter than next lunation 876 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠100.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠100.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠134.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 22 October 2070 at 03:04 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 November 2070 at 02:03 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 363 338 km

Moon is 363 338 km (225 768 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 849 km (252 183 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 19 October 2070 at 01:49 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 31 October 2070 at 23:32 in ♎ Libra.

Moon in northern standstill

At 19:48 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.400°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.443° in its southern standstill point on 6 November 2070 at 16:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 2 November 2070 at 22:42 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
