Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1944".

Cold Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2087 after 15 days on 9 December 2087 at 22:31.

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 1086 / 2039

At 11:29 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1086 of Meeus index or 2039 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.79 days

29 days, 18 hours and 54 minutes is the length of new lunation 1086. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 21:57, this is 14 days after last perigee on 10 November 2087 at 19:54 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 9 December 2087 at 08:50 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 406 539 km

This apogee Moon is 406 539 km (252 612 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2087. It is 1 131 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 170 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 23 November 2087 at 19:35 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 December 2087 at 19:31 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 12 November 2087 at 13:28 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.050°. Next 2 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.
