Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days 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 ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1942"

Beaver Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2070 after 24 days on 17 December 2070 at 16:05.

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 876 / 1829

The Moon is 20 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.

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 after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 19 November 2070 at 07:55 in ♊ Gemini. 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 4 December 2070 at 13:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 369 083 km

The Moon is 369 083 km (229 338 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 585 km (252 640 mi).

Moon before ascending node

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

Draconic month

22 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 after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 20 November 2070 at 04:59 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.488°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.543° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 December 2070 at 00:15 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 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.
