Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon is entering ♌ Leo

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1933"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1933" and ∠1936".

Worm Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2064 after 2 days on 3 March 2064 at 08:19.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 3 March 2064 at 08:19
  • Last Quarter in Sagittarius ♐ on 10 March 2064 at 00:33
  • New Moon in Pisces ♓ on 18 March 2064 at 01:45
  • First Quarter in Cancer ♋ on 26 March 2064 at 01:13

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 793 / 1746

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 793 of Meeus index or 1746 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.78 days

Length of current 793 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 42 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2064. It is 1 hour and 25 minutes longer than next lunation 794 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠156.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠181.6°. 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 perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 19 February 2064 at 18:41 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 March 2064 at 17:31 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 370 850 km

Moon is 370 850 km (230 436 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 969 km (221 810 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 16 February 2064 at 23:59 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 March 2064 at 02:40 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 26 February 2064 at 20:13 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.859°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.823° in the next southern standstill on 10 March 2064 at 08:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 3 March 2064 at 08:19 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
