Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 9 November 2079 at 04:34.

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

Synodic month length 29.72 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 10 minutes. It is 1 hour and 52 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 4 hours and 26 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠116.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠116.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠148.4°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 10 November 2079 at 21:38 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 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 26 November 2079 at 15:51 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 319 km

The Moon is 363 319 km (225 756 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 14 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 258 km (252 437 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after ascending node on 7 November 2079 at 11:17 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 20 November 2079 at 06:11 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 08:30 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠28.320°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-28.260° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 26 November 2079 at 04:46.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 23 November 2079 at 11:29 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.
