Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 3 November 2074 at 19:21.

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 ∠14° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1936".

Beaver Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2074 after 27 days on 3 December 2074 at 14:03.

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 925 / 1878

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 925 of Meeus index or 1878 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.41 days

Length of current 925 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 44 minutes. It is 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 926 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠335.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠335.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠352.3°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 10:36, this is 15 days after last perigee on 21 October 2074 at 21:56 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2074 at 07:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 406 179 km

This apogee Moon is 406 179 km (252 388 mi) away from Earth. It is 771 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 530 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 26 October 2074 at 15:21 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 November 2074 at 01:28 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 25 October 2074 at 10:55 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.522°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.659° in the next northern standstill on 8 November 2074 at 20:11 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 18 November 2074 at 20:56 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
