Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 23 November 2079 at 11:29.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1945".

Cold Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2079 after 12 days on 8 December 2079 at 15:16.

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 988 / 1941

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 988 of Meeus index or 1941 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.79 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 2 minutes. It is 22 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 6 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠148.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠148.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠174.6°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 15:51. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 10 November 2079 at 21:38 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 9 December 2079 at 06:48 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 258 km

This apogee Moon is 406 258 km (252 437 mi) away from Earth. It is 850 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 451 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

6 days after descending node on 20 November 2079 at 06:11 in ♎ Libra. 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 4 December 2079 at 19:50 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

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

Moon at southern standstill

At 04:46 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-28.260°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠28.228° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 9 December 2079 at 17:56.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 8 December 2079 at 15:16 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
