Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 7 March 2082 at 19:15.

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 ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1958"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1958" and ∠1930".

Worm Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2082 after 1 day on 14 March 2082 at 16:45.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 14 March 2082 at 16:45

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 1016 / 1969

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1016 of Meeus index or 1969 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.76 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 16 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2082. It is 1 hour and 19 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 32 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 31 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠154.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠154.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠179.1°.

Moon before apogee

11 days after point of apogee on 2 March 2082 at 08:00 in ♈ Aries. 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 2082 at 04:17 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 366 072 km

The Moon is 366 072 km (227 467 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 173 km (221 937 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 11:29 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 26 March 2082 at 13:54 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 8 March 2082 at 11:16 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.286°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.248° at the point of next southern standstill on 20 March 2082 at 23:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 14 March 2082 at 16:45 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.
