Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 2 November 2089 at 12:55.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1938".

Beaver Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2089 after 8 days on 18 November 2089 at 03:02.

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 1111 / 2064

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1111 of Meeus index or 2064 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.6 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 17 minutes. It is 2 hours and 28 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 1 hour and 32 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 30 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠64.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠64.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠99°.

Moon before perigee

11 days after point of perigee on 28 October 2089 at 23:05 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 10 November 2089 at 07:48 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 114 km

The Moon is 405 114 km (251 726 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 280 km (251 208 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 31 October 2089 at 06:06 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 14 November 2089 at 10:59 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 6 November 2089 at 03:10 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.316°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.377° at the point of next northern standstill on 20 November 2089 at 09:39 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 18 November 2089 at 03:02 in ♉ Taurus 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.
