Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 20 October 2044 at 23:36.

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 passing about ∠25° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1775"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1930".

Beaver Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2044 after 11 days on 5 November 2044 at 12:27.

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 554 / 1507

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 554 of Meeus index or 1507 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.64 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 21 minutes. It is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 26 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠90.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠90.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠126.5°.

Moon before perigee

12 days after point of perigee on 12 October 2044 at 15:35 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 27 October 2044 at 11:18 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 403 783 km

The Moon is 403 783 km (250 899 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 571 km (251 389 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after descending node on 17 October 2044 at 10:18 in ♍ Virgo. 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 31 October 2044 at 17:08 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

21 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 at southern standstill

At 15:51 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-28.259°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠28.171° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 8 November 2044 at 11:13.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 5 November 2044 at 12:27 in ♉ Taurus 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.
