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 ∠17° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1901" and ∠1940".

Beaver Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2031 after 14 days on 28 November 2031 at 23:18.

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 394 / 1347

At 21:09 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 394 of Meeus index or 1347 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.5 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 56 minutes. It is 55 minutes longer 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 48 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 21 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠312.6°

The true anomaly is ∠312.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠334.7°.

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 6 November 2031 at 02:45 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 17 November 2031 at 22:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 377 090 km

The Moon is 377 090 km (234 313 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 930 km (227 378 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 15:32 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 27 November 2031 at 14:01 in ♉ Taurus.

New draconic month

At 15:32 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 2 November 2031 at 15:55 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.333°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.336° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 November 2031 at 18:24 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.
