Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 30 March 2029 at 02:26.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1899"

Lunar disc appears visually 1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1899" and ∠1918".

Worm Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2029 after 23 days on 28 April 2029 at 10:37.

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 361 / 1314

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 361 of Meeus index or 1314 from Brown series.

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 after perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 30 March 2029 at 05:40 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 12 April 2029 at 23:04 in ♈ Aries.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 377 496 km

The Moon is 377 496 km (234 565 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 670 km (252 693 mi).

Moon before ascending node

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

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 3 April 2029 at 19:08 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.661°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.526° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 April 2029 at 10:56 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 13 April 2029 at 21:40 in ♈ Aries the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
