Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 24 November 2045 at 11:43.

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 leaving the last ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♍ Virgo later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1946".

Beaver Moon before 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2045 after 23 days on 24 December 2045 at 00:49.

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 567 / 1520

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 567 of Meeus index or 1520 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.58 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 52 minutes. It is 2 hours and 51 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 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠58.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠58.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠92.2°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 29 November 2045 at 18:10 in ♌ Leo. 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 14 December 2045 at 21:16 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 366 km

The Moon is 363 366 km (225 785 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 14 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 595 km (251 404 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 29 November 2045 at 17:44 in ♌ Leo. 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 13 December 2045 at 03:42 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 25 November 2045 at 23:56 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.257°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.229° at the point of next southern standstill on 8 December 2045 at 23:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 days on 8 December 2045 at 11:41 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.
