Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♏ Scorpio later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1828"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1828" and ∠1937".

Snow Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2062 after 25 days on 25 March 2062 at 03:35.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Sagittarius ♐ on 3 March 2062 at 03:49
  • New Moon in Pisces ♓ on 11 March 2062 at 04:13

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 768 / 1721

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 768 of Meeus index or 1721 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.67 days

Length of current 768 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 3 minutes. It is 2 hours and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 769 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 19 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 44 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠232.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠232.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠268.5°. 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 before apogee

6 days after point of perigee on 20 February 2062 at 23:11 in ♋ Cancer. 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 4 March 2062 at 17:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 392 163 km

Moon is 392 163 km (243 679 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 686 km (251 460 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 25 February 2062 at 12:19 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 March 2062 at 23:34 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 19 February 2062 at 04:33 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.626°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.680° in the next southern standstill on 4 March 2062 at 15:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 11 March 2062 at 04:13 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
