Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 23 November 2096 at 03:18.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1968"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1946".

Beaver Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2096 after 1 day 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 1198 / 2151

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1198 of Meeus index or 2151 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.81 days

Length of current 1198 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 30 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2096. It is 36 minutes longer than next lunation 1199 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 46 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 17 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠169.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠169.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠194.2°. 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 before perigee

12 days after point of apogee on 16 November 2096 at 05:04 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 November 2096 at 19:43 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 364 272 km

Moon is 364 272 km (226 348 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 609 km (221 587 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 18:48 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 12 December 2096 at 02:27 in ♏ Scorpio.

New draconic month

At 18:48 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 18 November 2096 at 19:29 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.983°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.962° in the next northern standstill on 1 December 2096 at 20:29 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 29 November 2096 at 21:34 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
