Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 1 November 2062 at 07:32.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon is entering ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1780"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1780" and ∠1936".

Beaver Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2062 after 11 days on 16 November 2062 at 20:48.

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 777 / 1730

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 777 of Meeus index or 1730 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.64 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 28 minutes. It is 2 hours and 28 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 2 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 19 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠86.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠86.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠123°.

Moon before perigee

11 days after point of perigee on 24 October 2062 at 12:04 in ♋ Cancer. 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 7 November 2062 at 23:42 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 402 673 km

The Moon is 402 673 km (250 209 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 510 km (251 351 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after descending node on 28 October 2062 at 19:18 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 November 2062 at 01:21 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 05:18 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-28.465°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠28.390° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 19 November 2062 at 04:48.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 16 November 2062 at 20:48 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.
