Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 11 November 2057 at 06:24.

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 ∠10° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1940".

Beaver Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2057 after 25 days on 11 December 2057 at 00:46.

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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 17:25. It is 16 days after previous perigee on 30 October 2057 at 17:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 27 November 2057 at 20:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 449 km

This apogee Moon is 405 449 km (251 934 mi) away from Earth. It is 41 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 260 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 14 November 2057 at 04:02 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 27 November 2057 at 21:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 14:41 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠24.485°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-24.511° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 29 November 2057 at 01:11.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 26 November 2057 at 14:22 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.
