Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 22 November 2039 at 21:17.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1878"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1878" and ∠1944".

Beaver Moon after 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2039 after 6 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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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

7 days 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 8 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 381 627 km

The Moon is 381 627 km (237 132 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 245 km (252 429 mi).

Moon before ascending node

6 days after descending node on 17 November 2039 at 12:34 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 1 December 2039 at 02:11 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

20 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 after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 19 November 2039 at 08:56 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.460°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.474° at the point of next northern standstill on 3 December 2039 at 10:32 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 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.
