Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 16 October 2054 at 17:44.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1930"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1930" and ∠1929".

Hunter Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2054 after 23 days on 15 November 2054 at 08:49.

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 677 / 1630

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 677 of Meeus index or 1630 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.43 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 12 minutes. It is 2 hours and 20 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 37 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠23.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠23.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠44°.

Moon before apogee

10 days after point of apogee on 12 October 2054 at 01:43 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 28 October 2054 at 01:15 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 371 458 km

The Moon is 371 458 km (230 813 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 225 km (226 940 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after descending node on 12 October 2054 at 01:43 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 25 October 2054 at 21:32 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 10:52 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠19.417°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-19.520° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 4 November 2054 at 07:53.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 30 October 2054 at 20:01 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
