Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 9 March 2035 at 23:09.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1952"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1930".

Worm Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2035 after 10 days on 23 March 2035 at 22:42.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Gemini ♊ on 16 March 2035 at 20:15
  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 23 March 2035 at 22:42
  • Last Quarter in Capricorn ♑ on 31 March 2035 at 23:06
  • New Moon in Aries ♈ on 8 April 2035 at 10:58

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 435 / 1388

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 435 of Meeus index or 1388 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.49 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 42 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 56 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 13 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠291.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠291.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠318.8°.

Moon before apogee

11 days after point of apogee on 2 March 2035 at 09:34 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 15 March 2035 at 01:35 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 367 276 km

The Moon is 367 276 km (228 215 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 413 km (229 543 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after descending node on 9 March 2035 at 15:01 in ♓ Pisces. 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 22 March 2035 at 12:53 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 4 March 2035 at 01:09 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.382°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.394° at the point of next northern standstill on 17 March 2035 at 10:06 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 23 March 2035 at 22:42 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.
