Moon* ♓ Pisces
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2006 after 15 days on 14 March 2006 at 23:35.
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 14:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 75 of Meeus index or 1028 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 16 minutes. It is 32 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 41 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠347.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠2.9°.
Moon is at perigee at 20:27. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 14 February 2006 at 00:48 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 13 March 2006 at 01:44 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 356 885 km (221 758 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2006. It is 5 623 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 460 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
10 days after descending node on 16 February 2006 at 14:38 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 1 March 2006 at 16:25 in ♓ Pisces.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 23 February 2006 at 09:37 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.648°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.694° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 March 2006 at 00:05 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
