Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1942".

Cold Moon after 20 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2076 after 20 days on 10 December 2076 at 11:35.

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 950 / 1903

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 950 of Meeus index or 1903 from Brown series.

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 apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 18 November 2076 at 23:07 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 December 2076 at 16:17 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 405 375 km

Moon is 405 375 km (251 888 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 627 km (229 676 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after its ascending node on 12 November 2076 at 22:52 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 November 2076 at 08:39 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 14 November 2076 at 19:07 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.085°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.107° in the next southern standstill on 29 November 2076 at 01:35 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 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.
