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 ∠10° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1945"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1945" and ∠1931".

Worm Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2036 after 1 day on 12 March 2036 at 09:09.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 12 March 2036 at 09:09
  • Last Quarter in Sagittarius ♐ on 19 March 2036 at 18:39
  • New Moon in Aries ♈ on 27 March 2036 at 20:57

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 447 / 1400

The Moon is 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 447 of Meeus index or 1400 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.66 days

Length of current 447 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 57 minutes. It is 3 hours and 21 minutes longer than next lunation 448 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠223.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠223.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠258.5°. 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

1 day after point of perigee on 10 March 2036 at 02:38 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 March 2036 at 21:41 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 368 536 km

Moon is 368 536 km (228 998 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 752 km (251 501 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 10 March 2036 at 13:58 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 March 2036 at 11:54 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 7 March 2036 at 07:25 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.281°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.336° in the next southern standstill on 20 March 2036 at 12:11 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 12 March 2036 at 09:09 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
