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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1946".

Cold Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2043 after 14 days on 16 December 2043 at 08:02.

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.

New lunation 543 / 1496

At 14:37 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 543 of Meeus index or 1496 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.8 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 11 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2043. It is 55 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 6 hours and 27 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 36 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠179.1°

The true anomaly is ∠179.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠204.4°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 17:07. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 17 November 2043 at 09:11 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 15 December 2043 at 22:01 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 406 706 km

This apogee Moon is 406 706 km (252 715 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2043. It is 1 298 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 3 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

5 days after descending node on 25 November 2043 at 15:09 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 10 December 2043 at 06:19 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, 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 19 November 2043 at 05:40 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.494°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-28.421° at the point of next southern standstill on 3 December 2043 at 07:43 in ♐ Sagittarius.

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.
