Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 18 November 2040 at 19:06.

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 ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1770"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1944".

Beaver Moon before 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2040 after 23 days on 18 December 2040 at 12:16.

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 505 / 1458

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 505 of Meeus index or 1458 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.53 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes longer 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 7 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 2 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠297°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠297°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠323.5°.

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 24 November 2040 at 19:12 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 December 2040 at 13:20 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 068 km

The Moon is 405 068 km (251 698 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 352 km (225 776 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after ascending node on 18 November 2040 at 14:37 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 3 December 2040 at 01:02 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

6 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 22 November 2040 at 02:56 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.813°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.791° at the point of next southern standstill on 6 December 2040 at 01:37 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 4 December 2040 at 07:33 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
