Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 10 November 2076 at 21:07.

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 ∠11° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1852"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1852" and ∠1939".

Beaver Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2076 after 27 days on 10 December 2076 at 11:35.

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 950 / 1903

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 950 of Meeus index or 1903 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 950 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 38 minutes. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes longer than next lunation 951 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠254.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠254.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠290.9°. 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 perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 6 November 2076 at 20:15 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 November 2076 at 23:07 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 386 993 km

Moon is 386 993 km (240 466 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 391 km (251 277 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♊ Gemini at 22:52 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 27 November 2076 at 08:39 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 22:52 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 1 November 2076 at 19:09 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.032°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.085° in the next northern standstill on 14 November 2076 at 19:07 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 26 November 2076 at 11:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
