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

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Gemini ♊ on 2 March 2058 at 05:10
  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 10 March 2058 at 08:52
  • Last Quarter in Sagittarius ♐ on 17 March 2058 at 15:56
  • New Moon in Aries ♈ on 24 March 2058 at 09:50

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 719 / 1672

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 719 of Meeus index or 1672 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 719 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 53 minutes. It is 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 720 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 18 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠28.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠28.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠50.9°. 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 apogee

6 days after point of perigee on 21 February 2058 at 06:06 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 March 2058 at 03:58 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 389 606 km

Moon is 389 606 km (242 090 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 080 km (251 705 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 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 3 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

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

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 19 February 2058 at 08:23 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.665°. Next 5 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 10 days

After 10 days on 10 March 2058 at 08:52 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
