Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 5 March 2091 at 15:59.

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 ♍ Virgo

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♎ Libra later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1969"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1934".

Worm Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2091 after 28 days on 4 April 2091 at 01:31.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Sagittarius ♐ on 12 March 2091 at 07:02
  • New Moon in Pisces ♓ on 20 March 2091 at 03:45

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 1127 / 2080

The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1127 of Meeus index or 2080 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.75 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 7 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2091. It is 33 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 23 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠137.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠137.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠165.8°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 16:02. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 22 February 2091 at 08:37 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 21 March 2091 at 17:48 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 358 572 km

This perigee Moon is 358 572 km (222 806 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 936 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 784 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 5 March 2091 at 10:19 in ♍ Virgo. 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 18 March 2091 at 15:30 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 28 February 2091 at 16:49 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.473°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.480° at the point of next southern standstill on 13 March 2091 at 06:18 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 20 March 2091 at 03:45 in ♓ Pisces 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.
