Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2086 after 14 days on 20 December 2086 at 08:19.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 1074 / 2027

At 11:53 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1074 of Meeus index or 2027 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.75 days

29 days, 17 hours and 54 minutes is the length of new lunation 1074. 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 1 December 2086 at 07:42 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 December 2086 at 09:07 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 398 718 km

Moon is 398 718 km (247 752 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 768 km (227 278 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 09:54 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 18 December 2086 at 14:55 in ♉ Taurus.

New draconic month

At 09:54 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 22 November 2086 at 03:31 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.622°. Next day 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.
