Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 2 November 2100 at 03:14.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon is entering ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1970"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1935".

Beaver Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2100 after 13 days on 16 November 2100 at 22:19.

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 1247 / 2200

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1247 of Meeus index or 2200 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.41 days

Length of current 1247 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 46 minutes. It is 1 hour and 10 minutes shorter than next lunation 1248 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠356.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠356.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠11.7°. 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

1 day after point of perigee on 2 November 2100 at 08:19 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 2100 at 05:23 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 863 km

Moon is 363 863 km (226 094 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 471 km (252 569 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 28 October 2100 at 20:12 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 November 2100 at 08:11 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 23 October 2100 at 08:12 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.129°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.051° in the next southern standstill on 5 November 2100 at 05:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 16 November 2100 at 22:19 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
