Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2058 after 17 days on 10 March 2058 at 08:52.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 718 of Meeus index or 1671 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 718 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 42 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2058. It is 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 719 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 7 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠10.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠28.2°. 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 before perigee

14 days after point of apogee on 5 February 2058 at 12:03 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 February 2058 at 06:06 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 549 km

Moon is 363 549 km (225 899 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 268 km (224 482 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 18 February 2058 at 00:21 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 March 2058 at 22:25 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 19 February 2058 at 08:23 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.665°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.758° in the next northern standstill on 4 March 2058 at 15:47 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 22 February 2058 at 22:56 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
