Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 15 February 2079 at 23:45.
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 ∠20° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2079 after 23 days on 17 March 2079 at 13:45.
The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 978 of Meeus index or 1931 from Brown series.
Length of current 978 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 13 minutes. It is 2 hours and 32 minutes longer than next lunation 979 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 34 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠261.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠296.6°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 11 February 2079 at 08:13 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 February 2079 at 18:10 in ♏ Scorpio.

10 days after previous North standstill on 12 February 2079 at 07:40 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.715°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.818° in the next southern standstill on 26 February 2079 at 08:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 9 days on 3 March 2079 at 13:49 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
