Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1772"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1949".

It is Cold Moon

The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 2057.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.

Lunation 716 / 1669

The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 716 of Meeus index or 1669 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.46 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 1 minute. It is 8 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 44 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 25 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠339°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠339°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠355.4°.

Moon before perigee

13 days after point of perigee on 27 November 2057 at 20:20 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 13 December 2057 at 06:08 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 404 601 km

The Moon is 404 601 km (251 407 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 205 km (252 404 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♊ Gemini at 10:23 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 25 December 2057 at 08:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.

New draconic month

At 10:23 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 29 November 2057 at 01:11 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.511°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠24.523° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 December 2057 at 21:42 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
