Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1874"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1874" and ∠1925".

Worm Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2035 after 1 day on 23 March 2035 at 22:42.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 23 March 2035 at 22:42
  • Last Quarter in Capricorn ♑ on 31 March 2035 at 23:06
  • New Moon in Aries ♈ on 8 April 2035 at 10:58
  • First Quarter in Cancer ♋ on 15 April 2035 at 02:55

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 435 / 1388

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 435 of Meeus index or 1388 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.49 days

Length of current 435 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 42 minutes longer than next lunation 436 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠291.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠291.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠318.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 15 March 2035 at 01:35 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 March 2035 at 05:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 382 396 km

Moon is 382 396 km (237 610 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 557 km (251 380 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 12:53 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 6 April 2035 at 00:06 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 12:53 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 17 March 2035 at 10:06 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.394°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.441° in the next southern standstill on 31 March 2035 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 23 March 2035 at 22:42 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
