Crescent ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 4 March 2087 at 23:45.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2087 after 12 days on 19 March 2087 at 06:09.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1078 of Meeus index or 2031 from Brown series.
Length of current 1078 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes longer than next lunation 1079 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠330.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠347.9°. 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 perigee on this date at 18:05, this is 11 days after last apogee on 22 February 2087 at 20:55 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 22 March 2087 at 11:38 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 361 586 km (224 679 mi) away from Earth. It is 922 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 8 770 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 March 2087 at 22:37 in ♉ Taurus.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 26 February 2087 at 16:05 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.215°. Next 4 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 12 days on 19 March 2087 at 06:09 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
