Worm Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2058 after 5 days on 10 March 2058 at 08:52.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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

11 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 March 2058 at 03:58 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 405 059 km

Moon is 405 059 km (251 692 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 080 km (251 705 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 2 March 2058 at 22:25 in ♊ Gemini, 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 17 March 2058 at 01:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon in northern standstill

At 15:47 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠24.758°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-24.900° in its southern standstill point on 18 March 2058 at 14:46 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 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.
