Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1951".

Synodic month length 29.49 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 47 minutes. It is 49 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 57 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 12 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠16.6°

The true anomaly is ∠16.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠35.6°.

Moon before apogee

16 days after point of apogee on 11 December 2065 at 06:28 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 7 January 2066 at 15:46 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 365 799 km

The Moon is 365 799 km (227 297 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 716 km (252 100 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after descending node on 15 December 2065 at 01:34 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 28 December 2065 at 03:31 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 26 December 2065 at 06:50 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.485°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.491° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 January 2066 at 23:20 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

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