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 ∠10° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1932".

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2038 after 14 days on 11 November 2038 at 22:27.

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.

At 03:53 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 480 of Meeus index or 1433 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.41 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 21 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 19 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠355.4°

The true anomaly is ∠355.4°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠10.8°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 10:19. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 15 October 2038 at 07:13 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 11 November 2038 at 08:59 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 356 944 km

This perigee Moon is 356 944 km (221 795 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 564 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 412 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 19 October 2038 at 08:51 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 1 November 2038 at 00:41 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 20 October 2038 at 00:51 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.638°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.732° at the point of next southern standstill on 1 November 2038 at 16:10 in ♑ Capricorn.

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.
