Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 3 November 2057 at 20:24.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1925"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1925" and ∠1936".

Beaver Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2057 after 5 days on 11 November 2057 at 06:24.

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 715 / 1668

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 715 of Meeus index or 1668 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.46 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 3 minutes. It is 3 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 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 28 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠318.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠318.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠339°.

Moon after perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 30 October 2057 at 17:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 15 November 2057 at 17:25 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 372 428 km

The Moon is 372 428 km (231 416 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 449 km (251 934 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 31 October 2057 at 13:39 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 14 November 2057 at 04:02 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 1 November 2057 at 16:37 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.406°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.485° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 November 2057 at 14:41 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 11 November 2057 at 06:24 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.
