Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 7 November 2071 at 18:47.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1960"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1938".

Beaver Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2071 after 25 days on 7 December 2071 at 06:57.

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 888 / 1841

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 888 of Meeus index or 1841 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.59 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 10 minutes. It is 2 hours and 37 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 1 hour and 26 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 37 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠67.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠67.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠102.9°.

Moon before apogee

11 days after point of apogee on 30 October 2071 at 19:30 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 12 November 2071 at 01:07 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 365 777 km

The Moon is 365 777 km (227 283 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 535 km (228 997 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after descending node on 4 November 2071 at 02:46 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 17 November 2071 at 01:15 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 00:34 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠18.336°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-18.413° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 24 November 2071 at 07:52.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 21 November 2071 at 18:59 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.
