Crescent ♈ Aries
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2002 after 14 days on 28 March 2002 at 18:25.
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 02:03 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 27 of Meeus index or 980 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 19 minutes. It is 1 hour 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 35 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠180.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠204.7°.
Moon is at apogee at 01:09. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 27 February 2002 at 19:47 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 28 March 2002 at 07:42 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 406 705 km (252 715 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2002. It is 1 297 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 4 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
7 days after descending node on 6 March 2002 at 16:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 21 March 2002 at 08:14 in ♊ Gemini.
20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 8 March 2002 at 01:59 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.510°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.668° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 March 2002 at 19:53 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
