Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 19 November 2038 at 22:10.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon is entering ♎ Libra

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°

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

Moon before apogee

11 days after point of apogee on 11 November 2038 at 08:59 in ♉ Taurus. 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 25 November 2038 at 22:45 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 368 097 km

The Moon is 368 097 km (228 725 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 562 km (222 179 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after ascending node on 15 November 2038 at 11:00 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 28 November 2038 at 08:54 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

7 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 after northern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 16 November 2038 at 07:17 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.829°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.865° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 November 2038 at 02:24 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 26 November 2038 at 13:47 in ♏ Scorpio the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
