Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 12 November 2019 at 13:34.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1925"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1925" and ∠1941".

Beaver Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2019 after 24 days on 12 December 2019 at 05:12.

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 245 / 1198

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 245 of Meeus index or 1198 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.48 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 27 minutes. It is 2 hours and 41 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 17 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 52 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠28.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠28.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠50.7°.

Moon before apogee

10 days after point of apogee on 7 November 2019 at 08:37 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 November 2019 at 07:54 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 372 359 km

The Moon is 372 359 km (231 373 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 721 km (227 870 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 16 November 2019 at 08:48 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 29 November 2019 at 04:13 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 16 November 2019 at 13:52 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.151°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.200° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 November 2019 at 10:36 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 26 November 2019 at 15:06 in ♏ Scorpio the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
