Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 17 November 2087 at 04:51.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1847"

Lunar disc appears visually 5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1847" and ∠1942".

Cold Moon after 21 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2087 after 21 days on 9 December 2087 at 22:31.

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 1086 / 2039

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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

7 days after point of perigee on 10 November 2087 at 19:54 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 November 2087 at 21:57 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 388 027 km

Moon is 388 027 km (241 109 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 539 km (252 612 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 10 November 2087 at 08:32 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 November 2087 at 19:35 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 12 November 2087 at 13:28 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.050°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.064° in the next southern standstill on 26 November 2087 at 15:53 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 days on 25 November 2087 at 06:23 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
