Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Worm Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2067 after 11 days on 1 March 2067 at 04:42.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 830 / 1783

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 830 of Meeus index or 1783 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.44 days

Length of current 830 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 31 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2067. It is 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 831 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 56 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠18.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠18.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠37.6°. 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 after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 12 February 2067 at 19:54 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 February 2067 at 01:39 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 380 109 km

Moon is 380 109 km (236 189 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 610 km (252 034 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 10 February 2067 at 02:51 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 February 2067 at 01:40 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 9 February 2067 at 10:40 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.790°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.698° in the next northern standstill on 22 February 2067 at 07:51 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 1 March 2067 at 04:42 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
