Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 24 March 2077 at 08:24.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon is entering ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1845"

Lunar disc appears visually 4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1845" and ∠1920".

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

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Cancer ♋ on 31 March 2077 at 07:02
  • Full Moon in Libra ♎ on 8 April 2077 at 11:05

Synodic month length 29.37 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 56 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2077. It is 22 minutes shorter 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 48 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 21 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠10.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠10.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠28°.

Moon before perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 23 March 2077 at 17:12 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 5 April 2077 at 09:27 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 388 487 km

The Moon is 388 487 km (241 395 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 101 km (252 339 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 28 March 2077 at 20:39 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 April 2077 at 10:56 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 18 March 2077 at 14:47 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.499°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠25.601° at the point of next northern standstill on 31 March 2077 at 04:33 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 8 April 2077 at 11:05 in ♎ Libra 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.
