Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 9 March 2077 at 17:42.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1864"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1864" and ∠1928".

Worm Moon before 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2077 after 22 days on 8 April 2077 at 11:05.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Sagittarius ♐ on 17 March 2077 at 16:56
  • New Moon in Aries ♈ on 24 March 2077 at 08:24
  • First Quarter in Cancer ♋ on 31 March 2077 at 07:02
  • Full Moon in Libra ♎ on 8 April 2077 at 11:05

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 954 / 1907

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 954 of Meeus index or 1907 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.39 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 18 minutes. It is 22 minutes longer 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 3 hours and 26 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠355.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠355.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠10.8°.

Moon before apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 9 March 2077 at 03:31 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 March 2077 at 17:12 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 384 469 km

The Moon is 384 469 km (238 898 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 576 km (222 187 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 09:32 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 28 March 2077 at 20:39 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 3 March 2077 at 22:10 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.349°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.499° at the point of next southern standstill on 18 March 2077 at 14:47 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 days on 24 March 2077 at 08:24 in ♈ Aries the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
