Gibbous ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 3 March 2001 at 02:03.
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 first ∠1° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2001 after 3 days on 9 March 2001 at 17:23.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 14 of Meeus index or 967 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 1 minute. It is 2 hours and 55 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 47 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠202.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠232.3°.
13 days after point of apogee on 20 February 2001 at 21:38 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 8 March 2001 at 08:55 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 363 573 km (225 914 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 779 km (223 556 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 5 March 2001 at 07:23 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 18 March 2001 at 04:58 in ♑ Capricorn.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 5 March 2001 at 04:32 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.756°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.857° at the point of next southern standstill on 18 March 2001 at 03:47 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 3 days on 9 March 2001 at 17:23 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
