Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 77% and growing larger.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 8 March 2014 at 13:27.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.79% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March after 5 days on 16 March 2014 at 17:09.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
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.
Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 175 of Meeus index or 1128 from Brown series.
Length of current 175 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 45 minutes. It is 45 minutes shorter than next lunation 176.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠25.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly is ∠46.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months increases since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon reaches point of apogee at 18:30 on this date, 11 days after perigee on 11 March 2014 at 19:46. Lunar orbit starts getting closer, while the Moon moves inward the Earth 16 days ahead until next perigee on 27 March 2014 at 18:30.
This apogee Moon is 405 367 km (251 883 mi) away from Earth. It is 41 km farther than mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 342 km closer than the farthest for 21st century.
6 days after its descending node on 4 March 2014 at 17:45, the Moon follows the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days untill it crosses the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 March 2014 at 06:30.
19 days after its beginning, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of current draconic month.
2 days after previous North standstill on 8 March 2014 at 22:54, when Moon reaches northern declination of ∠19.084°, lunar orbit moves southward for the next 11 days to face South declination of ∠-18.997° in the next southern standstill on 23 March 2014 at 07:28.
After 5 days the Moon is in Full Moon opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy on 16 March 2014 at 17:09.
