Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 6 November 2086 at 11:53.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1806"

Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1806" and ∠1937".

Beaver Moon after 12 days

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

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 1074 / 2027

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1074 of Meeus index or 2027 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.75 days

Length of current 1074 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 31 minutes longer than next lunation 1075 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠206.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠206.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠238°. 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 apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 3 November 2086 at 17:53 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2086 at 08:15 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 396 957 km

Moon is 396 957 km (246 658 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 374 km (223 926 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 03:04 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 21 November 2086 at 04:47 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 03:04 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon before southern standstill

13 days after previous North standstill on 25 October 2086 at 17:01 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.669°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.623° in the next southern standstill on 9 November 2086 at 06:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 20 November 2086 at 20:12 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
