Crescent ♓ Pisces
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2099 after 14 days on 6 March 2099 at 22:59.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 04:06 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1226 of Meeus index or 2179 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 41 minutes is the length of new lunation 1226. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes longer than next lunation 1227 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠175.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠199.5°. 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 apogee on this date at 17:45, this is 14 days after last perigee on 6 February 2099 at 04:14 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 6 March 2099 at 16:59 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 406 556 km (252 622 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2099. It is 1 148 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 153 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
11 days after its descending node on 8 February 2099 at 19:39 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 February 2099 at 01:04 in ♈ Aries.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 15 February 2099 at 03:18 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.548°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.627° in the next northern standstill on 1 March 2099 at 19:54 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
