Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1807" and ∠1944".

Cold Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2068 after 14 days on 8 December 2068 at 23:42.

Upcoming main Moon phases

At 21:42 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 852 of Meeus index or 1805 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.67 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 2 minutes. It is 2 hours and 10 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠241.5°

The true anomaly is ∠241.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠279.4°.

Moon after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 19 November 2068 at 19:10 in ♍ Virgo. 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 5 December 2068 at 19:40 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 396 760 km

The Moon is 396 760 km (246 535 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 315 km (227 618 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 01:37 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 7 December 2068 at 05:58 in ♉ Taurus.

New draconic month

At 01:37 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 11 November 2068 at 15:07 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.651°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-20.658° at the point of next southern standstill on 26 November 2068 at 02:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.

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.
