Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♍ Virgo later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1804"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1804" and ∠1945".

Cold Moon after 22 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2086 after 22 days on 20 December 2086 at 08:19.

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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1074 of Meeus index or 2027 from Brown series.

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 before apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 19 November 2086 at 08:15 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 December 2086 at 07:42 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 397 291 km

Moon is 397 291 km (246 865 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 341 km (251 867 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after its descending node on 21 November 2086 at 04:47 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 December 2086 at 09:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

19 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 22 November 2086 at 03:31 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.622°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.623° in the next southern standstill on 6 December 2086 at 12:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 6 December 2086 at 05:48 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
