Moon phase and lunation details

2 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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1775"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1939".

Worm Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2067 after 5 days on 1 March 2067 at 04:42.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 1 March 2067 at 04:42
  • Last Quarter in Sagittarius ♐ on 8 March 2067 at 16:16
  • New Moon in Pisces ♓ on 15 March 2067 at 08:29
  • First Quarter in Gemini ♊ on 22 March 2067 at 18:44

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 830 / 1783

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 830 of Meeus index or 1783 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 before apogee

10 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 February 2067 at 01:39 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 403 702 km

Moon is 403 702 km (250 849 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 610 km (252 034 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 01:40 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 9 March 2067 at 05:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 22 February 2067 at 07:51 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.698°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.547° in the next southern standstill on 8 March 2067 at 17:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 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.
