Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 11 October 2066 at 09:43.

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 ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1785"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1785" and ∠1924".

Beaver Moon after 19 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2066 after 19 days on 2 November 2066 at 02:13.

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 825 / 1778

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 825 of Meeus index or 1778 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.5 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 55 minutes. It is 32 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 49 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 20 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠272.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠272.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠304.7°.

Moon after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 10 October 2066 at 18:32 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 22 October 2066 at 18:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 401 658 km

The Moon is 401 658 km (249 579 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 509 km (228 360 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after descending node on 10 October 2066 at 02:19 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 23 October 2066 at 16:14 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 8 October 2066 at 22:14 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.153°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.054° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 October 2066 at 18:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 19 October 2066 at 01:42 in ♎ Libra 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.
