Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

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 962 / 1915

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 962 of Meeus index or 1915 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.75 days

Length of current 962 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 53 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2077. It is 47 minutes longer than next lunation 963 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

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

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠194.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠194.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠222.6°. 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

2 days after point of perigee on 30 October 2077 at 10:09 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 November 2077 at 17:19 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 368 617 km

Moon is 368 617 km (229 048 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 768 km (252 133 mi).

Moon in ascending node

New draconic month

At 18:57 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 23 October 2077 at 01:59 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.450°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.487° in the next northern standstill on 4 November 2077 at 15:36 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 15 November 2077 at 17:00 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
