Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Last Quarter

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2044 after 17 days on 13 March 2044 at 19:41.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 545 / 1498

The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 545 of Meeus index or 1498 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.67 days

Length of current 545 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours and 54 minutes longer than next lunation 546 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠235.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠235.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠272.5°. 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 apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 22 February 2044 at 05:18 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 March 2044 at 20:36 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 400 676 km

Moon is 400 676 km (248 969 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 930 km (229 864 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 15 February 2044 at 03:48 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 February 2044 at 14:57 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 23 February 2044 at 02:17 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.625°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.650° in the next northern standstill on 7 March 2044 at 16:53 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 28 February 2044 at 20:12 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
