Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 25 February 2064 at 11:23.

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 ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1911"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1911" and ∠1937".

Worm Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2064 after 3 days on 3 March 2064 at 08:19.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 3 March 2064 at 08:19
  • Last Quarter in Sagittarius ♐ on 10 March 2064 at 00:33
  • New Moon in Pisces ♓ on 18 March 2064 at 01:45
  • First Quarter in Cancer ♋ on 26 March 2064 at 01:13

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 793 / 1746

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 793 of Meeus index or 1746 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.78 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 42 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2064. It is 1 hour and 25 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 ∠156.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠181.6°.

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 19 February 2064 at 18:41 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 3 March 2064 at 17:31 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 375 076 km

The Moon is 375 076 km (233 061 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 969 km (221 810 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 16 February 2064 at 23:59 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 2 March 2064 at 02:40 in ♌ Leo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 26 February 2064 at 20:13 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.859°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.823° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 March 2064 at 08:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 days on 3 March 2064 at 08:19 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.
