Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days 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 ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1967"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1935".

Hunter Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2096 after 26 days on 29 November 2096 at 21:34.

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 1197 / 2150

The Moon is 18 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 after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 1 November 2096 at 07:33 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 November 2096 at 05:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 364 484 km

Moon is 364 484 km (226 480 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 511 km (252 594 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 1 November 2096 at 07:19 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 November 2096 at 20:36 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 22 October 2096 at 13:04 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.956°. Next day 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 11 days

After 11 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.
