Gibbous ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 24 February 2100 at 14:51.
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 ∠4° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2100 after 27 days on 26 March 2100 at 01:05.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1238 of Meeus index or 2191 from Brown series.
Length of current 1238 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 34 minutes. It is 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 1239 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠119.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠151.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 05:17, this is 11 days after last apogee on 14 February 2100 at 06:46 in ♈ Aries. 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 13 March 2100 at 21:09 in ♈ Aries.
This perigee Moon is 360 805 km (224 194 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 703 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 551 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 25 February 2100 at 09:12 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 March 2100 at 16:27 in ♓ Pisces.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 19 February 2100 at 17:35 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.552°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.575° in the next southern standstill on 4 March 2100 at 09:17 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 10 March 2100 at 22:28 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
