Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 14 March 2063 at 16:14.

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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1822"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1822" and ∠1926".

Worm Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2063 after 23 days on 13 April 2063 at 02:34.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Sagittarius ♐ on 21 March 2063 at 20:16
  • New Moon in Aries ♈ on 30 March 2063 at 00:50
  • First Quarter in Cancer ♋ on 6 April 2063 at 09:18
  • Full Moon in Libra ♎ on 13 April 2063 at 02:34

Neap tide

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 781 / 1734

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 781 of Meeus index or 1734 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.72 days

Length of current 781 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 12 minutes. It is 3 hours and 10 minutes longer than next lunation 782 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 28 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 35 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠204.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠204.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠234.9°. 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

7 days after point of perigee on 13 March 2063 at 05:45 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 March 2063 at 07:06 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 393 503 km

Moon is 393 503 km (244 511 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 402 km (251 905 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after its descending node on 13 March 2063 at 22:26 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 March 2063 at 21:01 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

19 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

11 days after previous North standstill on 8 March 2063 at 17:58 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.509°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.488° in the next southern standstill on 21 March 2063 at 12:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 30 March 2063 at 00:50 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
