Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 9 November 2085 at 08:31.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon is entering ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1938".

Cold Moon after 20 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2085 after 20 days on 1 December 2085 at 08:10.

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 1061 / 2014

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1061 of Meeus index or 2014 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 1061 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 21 minutes. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1062 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 26 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠234.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠234.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠271.2°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 18:58, this is 11 days after last perigee on 29 October 2085 at 23:49 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 25 November 2085 at 13:37 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 404 585 km

This apogee Moon is 404 585 km (251 397 mi) away from Earth. It is 823 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 124 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 4 November 2085 at 22:57 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 November 2085 at 09:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 4 November 2085 at 14:11 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.345°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.309° in the next southern standstill on 19 November 2085 at 01:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 days on 17 November 2085 at 08:20 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
