Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 26 February 2078 at 17:50.
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 ∠24° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2078 after 25 days on 28 March 2078 at 11:04.
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 966 of Meeus index or 1919 from Brown series.
Length of current 966 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 32 minutes longer than next lunation 967 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠321.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠340.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 22:52, this is 15 days after last perigee on 14 February 2078 at 23:02 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 15 March 2078 at 04:04 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 405 426 km (251 920 mi) away from Earth. It is 18 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 283 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
11 days after its ascending node on 18 February 2078 at 17:22 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 March 2078 at 20:48 in ♏ Scorpio.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 22 February 2078 at 00:30 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.679°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.812° in the next southern standstill on 8 March 2078 at 15:26 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 11 days on 14 March 2078 at 00:37 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
