Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 7 days on 15 March 2029 at 04:19.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1835" and ∠1925".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2029 after 7 days on 30 March 2029 at 02:26.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 361 of Meeus index or 1314 from Brown series.
Length of current 361 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 21 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer than next lunation 362 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 37 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 26 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠164.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠188.3°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 16 March 2029 at 21:33 in ♈ Aries. 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 30 March 2029 at 05:40 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 390 675 km (242 754 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 665 km (221 621 mi).
13 days after its ascending node on 9 March 2029 at 05:00 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 March 2029 at 20:28 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 05:25 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠24.763°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-24.661° in its southern standstill point on 3 April 2029 at 19:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 days on 30 March 2029 at 02:26 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
