Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 18 March 2032 at 20:56.

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 ∠12° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1925".

Worm Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2032 after 4 days on 27 March 2032 at 00:46.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Libra ♎ on 27 March 2032 at 00:46
  • Last Quarter in Capricorn ♑ on 3 April 2032 at 10:10
  • New Moon in Aries ♈ on 10 April 2032 at 02:39
  • First Quarter in Cancer ♋ on 17 April 2032 at 15:24

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 398 / 1351

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 398 of Meeus index or 1351 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.43 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 15 minutes. It is 41 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 29 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 40 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠23.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠23.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠44.4°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 08:27. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 10 March 2032 at 06:54 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 7 April 2032 at 06:55 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 454 km

This apogee Moon is 405 454 km (251 937 mi) away from Earth. It is 46 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 255 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

7 days after descending node on 15 March 2032 at 02:16 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 March 2032 at 15:09 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 18 March 2032 at 04:54 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.775°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.688° at the point of next southern standstill on 1 April 2032 at 17:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 27 March 2032 at 00:46 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.
