Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

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.

Beaver Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2100 after 26 days on 16 December 2100 at 17:00.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 1247 / 2200

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 1247 of Meeus index or 2200 from Brown series.

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 apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 16 November 2100 at 05:23 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 November 2100 at 20:37 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 397 735 km

Moon is 397 735 km (247 141 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 592 km (222 197 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 10 November 2100 at 08:11 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 November 2100 at 23:00 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 19 November 2100 at 13:29 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.950°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.917° in the next southern standstill on 2 December 2100 at 15:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 1 December 2100 at 13:00 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
