Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 21 November 2069 at 21:31.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1971"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1945".

Beaver Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2069 after 2 days on 28 November 2069 at 13:46.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 864 / 1817

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 864 of Meeus index or 1817 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.79 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2069. It is 1 hour and 15 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 6 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 47 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠185.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠185.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠211.5°.

Moon before apogee

13 days after point of apogee on 13 November 2069 at 07:36 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 November 2069 at 21:53 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 665 km

The Moon is 363 665 km (225 971 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 487 km (222 132 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 10:32 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 9 December 2069 at 16:16 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

14 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 before northern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 16 November 2069 at 09:59 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.293°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.315° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 November 2069 at 13:04 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 28 November 2069 at 13:46 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.
