Worm Moon after 9 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2039 after 9 days on 10 March 2039 at 16:35.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Gemini ♊ on 3 March 2039 at 02:15
  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 10 March 2039 at 16:35

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 484 / 1437

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 484 of Meeus index or 1437 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 484 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 42 minutes. It is 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 485 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠83.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠83.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠120.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 22:42, this is 14 days after last perigee on 15 February 2039 at 17:30 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 13 March 2039 at 18:38 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 404 389 km

This apogee Moon is 404 389 km (251 276 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 019 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 320 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 18 February 2039 at 09:34 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 March 2039 at 09:49 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 19 February 2039 at 06:19 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.002°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.115° in the next northern standstill on 5 March 2039 at 12:11 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 10 March 2039 at 16:35 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
