Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 29 February 2088 at 11:26.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2088 after 4 days on 7 March 2088 at 10:36.
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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1090 of Meeus index or 2043 from Brown series.
Length of current 1090 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 51 minutes. It is 2 hours and 27 minutes longer than next lunation 1091 length.
Length of current synodic month is 7 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 56 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠278.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠309.1°. 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 29 February 2088 at 14:18 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 March 2088 at 10:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 365 634 km (227 194 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 280 km (251 208 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 27 February 2088 at 04:19 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 March 2088 at 08:26 in ♏ Scorpio.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 1 March 2088 at 05:13 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.628°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.517° in the next southern standstill on 15 March 2088 at 00:16 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 4 days on 7 March 2088 at 10:36 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
