Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 26 October 2030 at 20:17.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1951"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1951" and ∠1934".

Beaver Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2030 after 8 days on 10 November 2030 at 03:30.

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 381 / 1334

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 381 of Meeus index or 1334 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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°

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

Moon after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 28 October 2030 at 12:07 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 13 November 2030 at 05:00 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 367 383 km

The Moon is 367 383 km (228 281 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 993 km (252 272 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after ascending node on 29 October 2030 at 03:24 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 11 November 2030 at 18:45 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 29 October 2030 at 20:28 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.941°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.904° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 November 2030 at 16:17 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 10 November 2030 at 03:30 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.
