Gibbous ♎ Libra
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
The Full Moon on this date is the Worm Moon of March.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.25% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1899" and ∠1922".
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 163 of Meeus index or 1116 from Brown series.
Length of current 163 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes shorter than next lunation 164.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 3 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠73.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly is ∠110.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months increases since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
8 days after point of apogee on 19 March 2013 at 03:13, lunar orbit gets closer while the Moon moves inward the Earth. It keeps this direction for next 3 days until it gets to the point of perigee on 31 March 2013 at 03:55.
Moon is 377 528 km (234 585 mi) away from Earth on this date. At previous apogee point before 8 days, distance is 404 262 km (251 197 mi). Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance reaches 367 494 km (228 350 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 16 March 2013 at 06:15, the Moon follows the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days untill it crosses the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 March 2013 at 05:55.
24 days after its beginning, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of current draconic month.
8 days after previous North standstill on 18 March 2013 at 21:50, when Moon reaches northern declination of ∠20.335°, lunar orbit moves southward for the next 5 days to face South declination of ∠-20.250° in the next southern standstill on 1 April 2013 at 12:03.
The Moon is in Full Moon opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
