Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 30 October 2069 at 03:35.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1947"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1947" and ∠1934".

Hunter Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2069 after 26 days on 28 November 2069 at 13:46.

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 863 / 1816

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 863 of Meeus index or 1816 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.77 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 34 minutes. It is 26 minutes shorter 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 5 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠161.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠161.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠185.4°.

Moon after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 30 October 2069 at 09:15 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 13 November 2069 at 07:36 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 368 235 km

The Moon is 368 235 km (228 811 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 514 km (252 596 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after descending node on 29 October 2069 at 23:39 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 November 2069 at 11:24 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 01:44 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠19.271°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2069. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-19.293° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 16 November 2069 at 09:59.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 13 November 2069 at 22:38 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
