Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 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.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2087 after 23 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 20 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 22 February 2087 at 20:55 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 March 2087 at 18:05 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 405 085 km (251 708 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 586 km (224 679 mi).
12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 February 2087 at 00:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 12 February 2087 at 05:55 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.361°. Next 3 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 9 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.
