Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 23 March 2029 at 07:33.

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 ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1927"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1927" and ∠1923".

Worm Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2029 after 3 days on 30 March 2029 at 02:26.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Libra ♎ on 30 March 2029 at 02:26

Synodic month length 29.72 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 21 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 37 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 26 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠164.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠164.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠188.3°.

Moon before apogee

9 days after point of apogee on 16 March 2029 at 21:33 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 30 March 2029 at 05:40 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 371 926 km

The Moon is 371 926 km (231 104 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 665 km (221 621 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after descending node on 23 March 2029 at 20:28 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 5 April 2029 at 05:50 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 22 March 2029 at 05:25 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.763°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.661° at the point of next southern standstill on 3 April 2029 at 19:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 days on 30 March 2029 at 02:26 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
