Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 6 November 2027 at 08:00.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1776"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1937".

Beaver Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2027 after 5 days on 14 November 2027 at 03:26.

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 344 / 1297

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 344 of Meeus index or 1297 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.58 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 48 minutes. It is 3 hours 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 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠61.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠61.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠96°.

Moon after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 6 November 2027 at 11:37 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 November 2027 at 00:10 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 403 579 km

The Moon is 403 579 km (250 772 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 356 km (229 507 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after ascending node on 5 November 2027 at 16:54 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 November 2027 at 08:34 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

2 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 southern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 2 November 2027 at 01:17 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.700°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.619° at the point of next northern standstill on 16 November 2027 at 07:40 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 14 November 2027 at 03:26 in ♉ Taurus the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
