Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 1 November 2085 at 19:08.

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 is entering ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1875"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1875" and ∠1935".

Beaver Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2085 after 27 days on 1 December 2085 at 08:10.

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 1061 / 2014

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 1061 of Meeus index or 2014 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 21 minutes. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 26 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠234.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠234.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠271.2°.

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 29 October 2085 at 23:49 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 10 November 2085 at 18:58 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 382 288 km

The Moon is 382 288 km (237 543 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 585 km (251 397 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 23 October 2085 at 05:04 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 4 November 2085 at 22:57 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 22 October 2085 at 19:20 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.402°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠23.345° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 November 2085 at 14:11 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 17 November 2085 at 08:20 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.
