Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 27 November 2099 at 21:22.

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 leaving the last ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Lunar disc appears visually 5.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1848" and ∠1946".

Beaver Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2099 after 28 days on 27 December 2099 at 12:58.

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 1235 / 2188

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 1235 of Meeus index or 2188 from Brown series.

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

6 days 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 9 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 387 866 km

Moon is 387 866 km (241 009 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 610 km (227 801 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 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 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 December 2099 at 21:04 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon in northern standstill

At 16:41 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.380°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.351° in its southern standstill point on 12 December 2099 at 13:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 11 December 2099 at 23:09 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
