Moon phase and lunation details

7 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 7 days on 12 November 2061 at 03:40.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1814"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1814" and ∠1942".

Beaver Moon after 7 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2061 after 7 days on 27 November 2061 at 06:32.

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 765 / 1718

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 765 of Meeus index or 1718 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.79 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 53 minutes. It is 27 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 54 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠151.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠151.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠176.8°.

Moon after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 15 November 2061 at 02:30 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 November 2061 at 19:57 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 395 181 km

The Moon is 395 181 km (245 554 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 101 km (221 892 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after descending node on 8 November 2061 at 21:38 in ♎ Libra. 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 23 November 2061 at 11:10 in ♈ Aries.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, 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 15 November 2061 at 15:41 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.489°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.441° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 November 2061 at 23:49 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 days on 27 November 2061 at 06:32 in ♊ Gemini 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.
