Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 26 November 2076 at 11:28.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1899"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1899" and ∠1945".

Cold Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2076 after 12 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 951 / 1904

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 951 of Meeus index or 1904 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.56 days

Length of current 951 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 33 minutes longer than next lunation 952 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠290.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠290.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠319.3°. 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 before perigee

8 days 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 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 December 2076 at 16:17 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 377 415 km

Moon is 377 415 km (234 515 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 627 km (229 676 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 08:39 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 10 December 2076 at 07:37 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 14 November 2076 at 19:07 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.085°. Next day 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 12 days

After 12 days on 10 December 2076 at 11:35 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
