Gibbous ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 11 February 2074 at 21:05.
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 is passing about ∠15° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2074 after 25 days on 13 March 2074 at 09:01.
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.
The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 916 of Meeus index or 1869 from Brown series.
Length of current 916 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 23 minutes. It is 57 minutes shorter than next lunation 917 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 39 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 24 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠72.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠110°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 14:22, this is 11 days after last apogee on 3 February 2074 at 14:44 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 3 March 2074 at 10:49 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 367 554 km (228 387 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 046 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 802 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after its ascending node on 11 February 2074 at 01:16 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 February 2074 at 22:23 in ♒ Aquarius.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 8 February 2074 at 15:47 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.239°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.259° in the next southern standstill on 21 February 2074 at 13:21 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 10 days on 25 February 2074 at 22:00 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
