Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 3 March 2085 at 07:16.
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.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1780" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2085 after 6 days on 11 March 2085 at 12:26.
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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1053 of Meeus index or 2006 from Brown series.
Length of current 1053 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 5 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2085. It is 17 minutes shorter than next lunation 1054 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 39 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 30 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠16.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠35.4°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 23 February 2085 at 06:52 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 March 2085 at 14:41 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 402 569 km (250 145 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 701 km (252 091 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 09:49 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 19 March 2085 at 14:38 in ♑ Capricorn.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 3 March 2085 at 19:04 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.652°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.502° in the next southern standstill on 18 March 2085 at 07:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 11 March 2085 at 12:26 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
