Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 14 November 2060 at 23:48.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2060 after 19 days on 7 December 2060 at 14:48.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 752 / 1705

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 752 of Meeus index or 1705 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.78 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 50 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2060. It is 26 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 6 hours and 6 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 57 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠174.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠174.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠199.1°.

Moon before perigee

10 days after point of perigee on 7 November 2060 at 22:11 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 21 November 2060 at 01:49 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 401 651 km

The Moon is 401 651 km (249 574 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 318 km (252 474 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 7 November 2060 at 00:56 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 20 November 2060 at 10:05 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 11 November 2060 at 10:15 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.098°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.046° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 November 2060 at 22:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 23 November 2060 at 04:16 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.
