Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 17 November 2085 at 08:20.

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 ∠22° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1941"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1941" and ∠1943".

Cold Moon after 9 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2085 after 9 days on 1 December 2085 at 08:10.

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 1062 / 2015

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1062 of Meeus index or 2015 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.6 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 18 minutes. It is 1 hour and 32 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 1 hour and 33 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 29 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠271.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠271.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠305°.

Moon before apogee

10 days after point of apogee on 10 November 2085 at 18:58 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 25 November 2085 at 13:37 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 369 274 km

The Moon is 369 274 km (229 456 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 952 km (229 878 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after ascending node on 19 November 2085 at 09:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 2 December 2085 at 07:25 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

2 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 after southern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 19 November 2085 at 01:11 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.309°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.305° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 December 2085 at 23:22 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 1 December 2085 at 08:10 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.
