Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 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 in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1937".

Beaver Moon after 9 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2062 after 9 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 6 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.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 23:42. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 24 October 2062 at 12:04 in ♋ Cancer. 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 19 November 2062 at 18:46 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 510 km

This apogee Moon is 404 510 km (251 351 mi) away from Earth. It is 898 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 199 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

9 days after descending node on 28 October 2062 at 19:18 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 November 2062 at 01:21 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

22 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 after southern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 5 November 2062 at 05:18 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.465°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.390° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 November 2062 at 04:48 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 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.
