Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 26 October 2087 at 11:29.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1770"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1931".

Beaver Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2087 after 14 days on 10 November 2087 at 12:05.

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 1086 / 2039

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1086 of Meeus index or 2039 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.79 days

Length of current 1086 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 54 minutes. It is 25 minutes shorter than next lunation 1087 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠158.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠158.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠183°. 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

14 days after point of perigee on 13 October 2087 at 09:38 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 October 2087 at 19:16 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 060 km

Moon is 405 060 km (251 693 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 334 km (252 484 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 13:13 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 10 November 2087 at 08:32 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 13:13 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 16 October 2087 at 04:13 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.085°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.046° in the next southern standstill on 30 October 2087 at 09:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 10 November 2087 at 12:05 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
