Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 19 November 2099 at 17:17.

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 ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Beaver Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2099 after 3 days on 27 November 2099 at 21:22.

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 1235 / 2188

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1235 of Meeus index or 2188 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.49 days

Length of current 1235 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 40 minutes. It is 2 hours and 7 minutes shorter than next lunation 1236 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 ∠27.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠27.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠49.8°. 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

1 day after point of apogee on 22 November 2099 at 17:25 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 December 2099 at 17:50 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 488 km

Moon is 404 488 km (251 337 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 610 km (227 801 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 21 November 2099 at 23:18 in ♓ Pisces, 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 5 December 2099 at 21:04 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 15 November 2099 at 04:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.455°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.380° in the next northern standstill on 29 November 2099 at 16:41 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 27 November 2099 at 21:22 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
