Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 12 March 2030 at 08:48.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1812"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1812" and ∠1930".

Worm Moon after 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2030 after 5 days on 19 March 2030 at 17:56.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 19 March 2030 at 17:56
  • Last Quarter in Capricorn ♑ on 26 March 2030 at 09:51
  • New Moon in Aries ♈ on 2 April 2030 at 22:02
  • First Quarter in Cancer ♋ on 11 April 2030 at 02:57

Moderate tide

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 373 / 1326

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 373 of Meeus index or 1326 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 28 minutes. It is 42 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 19 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠104.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠104.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠139°.

Moon after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 10 March 2030 at 02:23 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 March 2030 at 22:00 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 395 461 km

The Moon is 395 461 km (245 728 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 974 km (225 542 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after descending node on 12 March 2030 at 06:43 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 25 March 2030 at 05:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 12 March 2030 at 01:51 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.130°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.011° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 March 2030 at 03:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 19 March 2030 at 17:56 in ♍ Virgo 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.
