Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 29 October 2099 at 04:20.

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 is entering ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1859"

Lunar disc appears visually 4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1859" and ∠1934".

Hunter Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2099 after 25 days on 27 November 2099 at 21:22.

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 1234 / 2187

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 1234 of Meeus index or 2187 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.41 days

Length of current 1234 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 57 minutes. It is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 1235 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 47 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 22 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠10.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠27.7°. 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 apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 26 October 2099 at 03:06 in ♓ Pisces. 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 10 November 2099 at 19:35 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 385 580 km

Moon is 385 580 km (239 588 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 208 km (224 444 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 25 October 2099 at 20:01 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 November 2099 at 18:31 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon in northern standstill

At 11:20 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.524°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.455° in its southern standstill point on 15 November 2099 at 04:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 12 November 2099 at 11:29 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
