Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 25 February 2034 at 16:34.

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 leaving the last ∠1° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♌ Leo later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1878"

Lunar disc appears visually 3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1878" and ∠1936".

Worm Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2034 after 3 days on 5 March 2034 at 02:10.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 5 March 2034 at 02:10
  • Last Quarter in Sagittarius ♐ on 13 March 2034 at 06:45
  • New Moon in Pisces ♓ on 20 March 2034 at 10:14
  • First Quarter in Cancer ♋ on 27 March 2034 at 01:18

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 422 / 1375

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 422 of Meeus index or 1375 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.46 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 4 minutes. It is 1 hour and 53 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 29 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠317.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠317.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠337.6°.

Moon after perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 21 February 2034 at 15:30 in ♈ Aries. 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 9 March 2034 at 16:05 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 381 615 km

The Moon is 381 615 km (237 125 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 268 km (251 822 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after descending node on 21 February 2034 at 05:47 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 6 March 2034 at 14:21 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, 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 27 February 2034 at 06:42 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.195°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.147° at the point of next southern standstill on 13 March 2034 at 19:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 days on 5 March 2034 at 02:10 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.
