Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 25 November 2087 at 06:23.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1827"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1827" and ∠1946".

Cold Moon after 9 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2087 after 9 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 1087 / 2040

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1087 of Meeus index or 2040 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.8 days

Length of current 1087 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 19 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2087. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes longer than next lunation 1088 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 28 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠183°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠183°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠208.8°. 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

5 days after point of apogee on 24 November 2087 at 21:57 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 December 2087 at 08:50 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 392 287 km

Moon is 392 287 km (243 756 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 237 km (221 977 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days 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 7 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

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

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 26 November 2087 at 15:53 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.064°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.072° in the next northern standstill on 10 December 2087 at 01:14 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 9 December 2087 at 22:31 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
