Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 17 February 2087 at 13:34.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2087 after 24 days on 19 March 2087 at 06:09.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1077 of Meeus index or 2030 from Brown series.
Length of current 1077 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 35 minutes. It is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than next lunation 1078 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 9 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠308.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠330.8°. 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 20:55, this is 15 days after last perigee on 6 February 2087 at 21:41 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 6 March 2087 at 18:05 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 404 929 km (251 611 mi) away from Earth. It is 479 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 780 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
11 days after its descending node on 10 February 2087 at 21:48 in ♉ Taurus, 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 25 February 2087 at 00:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 12 February 2087 at 05:55 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.361°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.215° in the next southern standstill on 26 February 2087 at 16:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 10 days on 4 March 2087 at 23:45 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
