Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 22 October 2086 at 09:56.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon is entering ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1944"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1944" and ∠1930".

Hunter Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2086 after 27 days on 20 November 2086 at 20:12.

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 1073 / 2026

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1073 of Meeus index or 2026 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.75 days

Length of current 1073 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 57 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2086. It is 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1074 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠181.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠181.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠206.3°. 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 21 October 2086 at 22:00 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 3 November 2086 at 17:53 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 368 806 km

Moon is 368 806 km (229 165 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 226 km (252 417 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 18:13 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 8 November 2086 at 03:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 13 October 2086 at 01:01 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.722°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.669° in the next northern standstill on 25 October 2086 at 17:01 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 6 November 2086 at 11:53 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
