Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1970"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1944".

Cold Moon after 21 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2081 after 21 days on 16 December 2081 at 04:31.

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 1012 / 1965

The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1012 of Meeus index or 1965 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.48 days

Length of current 1012 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 20 minutes shorter than next lunation 1013 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠29.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠29.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠52.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon before perigee

13 days after point of apogee on 11 November 2081 at 04:54 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2081 at 03:46 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 363 830 km

Moon is 363 830 km (226 073 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 156 km (228 140 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 11:52 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 7 December 2081 at 17:00 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 19 November 2081 at 01:19 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.201°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.151° in the next southern standstill on 1 December 2081 at 21:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 days on 30 November 2081 at 14:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
