Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 25 November 2087 at 06:23.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1772"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1945".

Cold Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2087 after 13 days on 9 December 2087 at 22:31.

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 1087 / 2040

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1087 of Meeus index or 2040 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.8 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 19 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2087. It is 1 hour and 23 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 6 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 28 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠183°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠183°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠208.8°.

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 24 November 2087 at 21:57 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 9 December 2087 at 08:50 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 407 km

The Moon is 404 407 km (251 287 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 237 km (221 977 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after ascending node on 23 November 2087 at 19:35 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 7 December 2087 at 19:31 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 15:53 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-20.064°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠20.072° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 10 December 2087 at 01:14.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 9 December 2087 at 22:31 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.
