Crescent ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 3 March 2079 at 13:49.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1906" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2079 after 13 days on 17 March 2079 at 13:45.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 979 of Meeus index or 1932 from Brown series.
Length of current 979 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 41 minutes. It is 2 hours and 14 minutes longer than next lunation 980 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠296.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠322.3°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 23 February 2079 at 18:10 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 March 2079 at 01:47 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 376 017 km (233 646 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 876 km (229 209 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 21 February 2079 at 02:05 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 March 2079 at 01:24 in ♉ Taurus.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 26 February 2079 at 08:11 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.818°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.915° in the next northern standstill on 11 March 2079 at 13:15 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 17 March 2079 at 13:45 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
