Gibbous ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 24 February 2089 at 22:05.
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 first ∠0° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1909" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2089 after 27 days on 26 March 2089 at 09:20.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1102 of Meeus index or 2055 from Brown series.
Length of current 1102 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours and 46 minutes longer than next lunation 1103 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠211.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠244.3°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 23 February 2089 at 04:43 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 March 2089 at 02:34 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 375 461 km (233 301 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 275 km (251 826 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 15 February 2089 at 05:13 in ♈ Aries, 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 27 February 2089 at 20:38 in ♎ Libra.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 20 February 2089 at 01:51 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.626°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.545° in the next southern standstill on 5 March 2089 at 03:03 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 12 March 2089 at 08:24 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
