Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 28 November 2069 at 13:46.

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 passing about ∠21° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1957"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1957" and ∠1946".

Beaver Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2069 after 28 days on 28 December 2069 at 00:50.

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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 864 of Meeus index or 1817 from Brown series.

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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 27 November 2069 at 21:53 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 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 10 December 2069 at 12:50 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 366 325 km

The Moon is 366 325 km (227 624 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 042 km (252 303 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after descending node on 26 November 2069 at 10:32 in ♉ Taurus. 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 9 December 2069 at 16:16 in ♎ Libra.

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 13:04 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠19.315°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-19.339° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 13 December 2069 at 16:54.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 14 days

In 14 days on 13 December 2069 at 17:38 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
