Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♓ Pisces later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1944".

Cold Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2036 after 8 days on 3 December 2036 at 14:08.

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 456 / 1409

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 456 of Meeus index or 1409 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.64 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes. It is 2 hours and 40 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 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠76°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠76°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠113°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 04:24. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 11 November 2036 at 18:21 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next perigee on 7 December 2036 at 01:52 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 404 313 km

This apogee Moon is 404 313 km (251 228 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 095 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 396 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 23 November 2036 at 22:06 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 7 December 2036 at 14:24 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 21 November 2036 at 10:22 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.497°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.561° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 December 2036 at 14:26 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 3 December 2036 at 14:08 in ♊ Gemini 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.
