Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 25 February 2087 at 17:06.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1839" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2087 after 18 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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
5 days 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 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 March 2087 at 18:05 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 389 733 km (242 169 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 586 km (224 679 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 25 February 2087 at 00:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 March 2087 at 22:37 in ♉ Taurus.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 26 February 2087 at 16:05 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.215°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.096° in the next northern standstill on 11 March 2087 at 11:26 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 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.
