Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1971"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1944".

Cold Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2085 after 5 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 1062 / 2015

The Moon is 8 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1062 of Meeus index or 2015 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.6 days

Length of current 1062 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 18 minutes. It is 1 hour and 32 minutes longer than next lunation 1063 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 29 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠271.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠271.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠305°. 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 perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 13:37, this is 14 days after last apogee on 10 November 2085 at 18:58 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 8 December 2085 at 15:54 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 369 952 km

This perigee Moon is 369 952 km (229 878 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2085. It is 7 444 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 404 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

6 days after its ascending node on 19 November 2085 at 09:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 December 2085 at 07:25 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 19 November 2085 at 01:11 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.309°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.305° in the next northern standstill on 1 December 2085 at 23:22 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 1 December 2085 at 08:10 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
