Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1955" and ∠1931".

Beaver Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2030 after 13 days on 10 November 2030 at 03:30.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 381 / 1334

At 20:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 381 of Meeus index or 1334 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.44 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 30 minutes. It is 16 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 55 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠332.4°

The true anomaly is ∠332.4°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠349.8°.

Moon before apogee

10 days after point of apogee on 16 October 2030 at 13:21 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 28 October 2030 at 12:07 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 366 578 km

The Moon is 366 578 km (227 781 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 122 km (224 391 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after descending node on 15 October 2030 at 13:20 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 October 2030 at 03:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 16 October 2030 at 09:43 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.995°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.941° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 October 2030 at 20:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
