Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days 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 ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2087 after 10 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 4 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 6 March 2087 at 18:05 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 March 2087 at 11:38 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 363 363 km (225 783 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 772 km (252 135 mi).
11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 March 2087 at 22:37 in ♉ Taurus.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 26 February 2087 at 16:05 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.215°. Next 2 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 10 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.
