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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1799"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1799" and ∠1922".

Beaver Moon after 22 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2085 after 22 days on 1 November 2085 at 19:08.

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 1060 / 2013

The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1060 of Meeus index or 2013 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.66 days

Length of current 1060 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 53 minutes. It is 32 minutes longer than next lunation 1061 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠204.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠204.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠234.1°. 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 apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 1 October 2085 at 22:42 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 October 2085 at 00:42 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 398 530 km

Moon is 398 530 km (247 635 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 393 km (251 900 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 8 October 2085 at 17:26 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 October 2085 at 05:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 8 October 2085 at 05:07 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.510°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.402° in the next southern standstill on 22 October 2085 at 19:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 18 October 2085 at 17:00 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
