Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 18 November 2070 at 05:40.

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 ∠15° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1971"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1942".

Beaver Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2070 after 28 days on 17 December 2070 at 16:05.

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 876 / 1829

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 876 of Meeus index or 1829 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.76 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 27 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠134.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠134.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠163.2°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 07:55. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 7 November 2070 at 02:03 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 4 December 2070 at 13:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 358 729 km

This perigee Moon is 358 729 km (222 904 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 779 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 627 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 15 November 2070 at 11:41 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 28 November 2070 at 03:19 in ♎ Libra.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 6 November 2070 at 16:41 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.443°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠18.488° at the point of next northern standstill on 20 November 2070 at 04:59 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 2 December 2070 at 16:53 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.
