Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 16 November 2039 at 05:46.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

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

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1941".

Beaver Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2039 after 12 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 493 / 1446

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 493 of Meeus index or 1446 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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°

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

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 17 November 2039 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 2 December 2039 at 16:15 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 302 km

The Moon is 363 302 km (225 745 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 14 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 245 km (252 429 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 17 November 2039 at 12:34 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 1 December 2039 at 02:11 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

12 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 day 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

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 30 November 2039 at 16:49 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.
