Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 24 November 2026 at 14:53.

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 is entering ♌ Leo

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1966"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1945".

Beaver Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2026 after 25 days on 24 December 2026 at 01:28.

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 332 / 1285

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 332 of Meeus index or 1285 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.74 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 50 minutes. It is 1 hour and 43 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 6 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 57 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠129.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠129.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠159.4°.

Moon after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 25 November 2026 at 20:58 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 11 December 2026 at 06:46 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 364 601 km

The Moon is 364 601 km (226 553 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 421 km (252 538 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 17 November 2026 at 11:49 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 30 November 2026 at 03:34 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 26 November 2026 at 02:01 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.645°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.602° at the point of next southern standstill on 9 December 2026 at 15:27 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 9 December 2026 at 00:52 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
