Moon phase and lunation details

1 day 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 in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1938".

Worm Moon after 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2075 after 6 days on 2 March 2075 at 20:06.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 2 March 2075 at 20:06
  • Last Quarter in Sagittarius ♐ on 9 March 2075 at 20:17
  • New Moon in Pisces ♓ on 16 March 2075 at 19:25
  • First Quarter in Gemini ♊ on 24 March 2075 at 16:45

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 929 / 1882

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 929 of Meeus index or 1882 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.53 days

Length of current 929 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. It is 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 930 length.

Lunation length same as the mean

Length of current synodic month is equal to the mean length of synodic month. It is 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the 21st century shortest and 7 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the 21st century longest synodic month.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠46.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.5°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 02:31, this is 11 days after last perigee on 12 February 2075 at 07:55 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 10 March 2075 at 13:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 450 km

This apogee Moon is 404 450 km (251 314 mi) away from Earth. It is 958 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 259 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 12 February 2075 at 23:10 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 February 2075 at 22:09 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 12 February 2075 at 04:13 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.860°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.916° in the next northern standstill on 26 February 2075 at 00:14 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 days on 2 March 2075 at 20:06 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
