Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 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 is entering ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1845"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1845" and ∠1938".

Beaver Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2086 after 10 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 1074 / 2027

The Moon is 4 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

6 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 8 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 388 537 km

Moon is 388 537 km (241 426 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 374 km (223 926 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 8 November 2086 at 03:04 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 November 2086 at 04:47 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 9 November 2086 at 06:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.623°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.622° in the next northern standstill on 22 November 2086 at 03:31 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 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.
