Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2089 after 28 days on 18 November 2089 at 03:02.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 1110 / 2063

The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1110 of Meeus index or 2063 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.49 days

Length of current 1110 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 40 minutes. It is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 1111 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠38.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠38.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠64.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 13 October 2089 at 11:47 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 28 October 2089 at 23:05 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 386 196 km

Moon is 386 196 km (239 971 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 917 km (229 234 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 18 October 2089 at 03:46 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 31 October 2089 at 06:06 in ♎ Libra.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 9 October 2089 at 17:53 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.220°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.262° in the next northern standstill on 24 October 2089 at 02:33 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 2 November 2089 at 12:55 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
