Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1875"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1875" and ∠1939".

Worm Moon after 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2037 after 6 days on 2 March 2037 at 00:28.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 2 March 2037 at 00:28
  • Last Quarter in Sagittarius ♐ on 8 March 2037 at 19:25
  • New Moon in Pisces ♓ on 16 March 2037 at 23:36

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 459 / 1412

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 459 of Meeus index or 1412 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.78 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 42 minutes. It is 2 hours and 11 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 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠173.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠173.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠197.5°.

Moon before apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 15 February 2037 at 23:45 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 March 2037 at 19:48 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 382 188 km

The Moon is 382 188 km (237 481 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 710 km (221 649 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after descending node on 13 February 2037 at 14:49 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 27 February 2037 at 18:35 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 11 February 2037 at 08:55 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.580°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.631° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 February 2037 at 22:25 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 2 March 2037 at 00:28 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.
