Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2099 after 14 days on 6 March 2099 at 22:59.

Upcoming main Moon phases

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 1226 / 2179

At 04:06 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1226 of Meeus index or 2179 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.78 days

29 days, 18 hours and 41 minutes is the length of new lunation 1226. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes longer than next lunation 1227 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠175.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠175.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠199.5°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 17:45, this is 14 days after last perigee on 6 February 2099 at 04:14 in ♌ Leo. 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 6 March 2099 at 16:59 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 406 556 km

This apogee Moon is 406 556 km (252 622 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2099. It is 1 148 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 153 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 8 February 2099 at 19:39 in ♍ Virgo, 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 23 February 2099 at 01:04 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 15 February 2099 at 03:18 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.548°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.627° in the next northern standstill on 1 March 2099 at 19:54 in ♊ Gemini.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
