Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2064 after 16 days on 3 March 2064 at 08:19.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 792 / 1745

The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 792 of Meeus index or 1745 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.77 days

Length of current 792 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 26 minutes. It is 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 793 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠125.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠125.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠156.8°. 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 4 February 2064 at 06:21 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 19 February 2064 at 18:41 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 398 598 km

Moon is 398 598 km (247 677 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 266 km (252 442 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 3 February 2064 at 15:20 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 February 2064 at 23:59 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 12 February 2064 at 02:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.877°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.859° in the next northern standstill on 26 February 2064 at 20:13 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 17 February 2064 at 07:03 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
