Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♐ Sagittarius later.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1941".

Beaver Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2039 after 14 days on 30 November 2039 at 16:49.

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 05:46 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 493 of Meeus index or 1446 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.45 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 46 minutes. It is 7 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 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 11 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠340.7°

The true anomaly is ∠340.7°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠356.9°.

Moon before apogee

11 days after point of apogee on 5 November 2039 at 04:29 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 17 November 2039 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 365 524 km

The Moon is 365 524 km (227 126 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 171 km (223 179 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after ascending node on 3 November 2039 at 19:55 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 17 November 2039 at 12:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 6 November 2039 at 03:44 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.428°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.460° at the point of next southern standstill on 19 November 2039 at 08:56 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.
