Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 31 October 2039 at 22:36.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1771"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1935".

Hunter Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2039 after 27 days on 30 November 2039 at 16:49.

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 492 / 1445

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 492 of Meeus index or 1445 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.44 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 37 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2039. It is 9 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 7 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 2 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠321.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠321.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠340.7°.

Moon before perigee

14 days after point of perigee on 20 October 2039 at 05:11 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 5 November 2039 at 04:29 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 404 681 km

The Moon is 404 681 km (251 457 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 534 km (251 987 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♊ Gemini at 19:55 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 17 November 2039 at 12:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.

New draconic month

At 19:55 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 23 October 2039 at 01:02 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.344°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.428° at the point of next northern standstill on 6 November 2039 at 03:44 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 16 November 2039 at 05:46 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.
