Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2077 after 22 days on 9 March 2077 at 17:42.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Synodic month length 29.43 days

Length of current 953 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 21 minutes. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 954 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 23 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 46 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠339.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠339.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.5°. 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 after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 10 February 2077 at 02:41 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 February 2077 at 05:20 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 4 February 2077 at 17:05 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.148°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.259° in the next southern standstill on 19 February 2077 at 06:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
