Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 31 October 2096 at 11:16.

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.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1934".

Hunter Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2096 after 28 days on 29 November 2096 at 21:34.

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 1197 / 2150

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1197 of Meeus index or 2150 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.75 days

Length of current 1197 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 7 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes shorter than next lunation 1198 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 23 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠143.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠143.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠169.7°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:33, this is 12 days after last apogee on 19 October 2096 at 20:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 16 November 2096 at 05:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 358 056 km

This perigee Moon is 358 056 km (222 486 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 452 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 300 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 07:19 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 14 November 2096 at 20:36 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 07:19 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 22 October 2096 at 13:04 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.956°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.978° in the next northern standstill on 4 November 2096 at 10:38 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 15 November 2096 at 00:36 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
