Crescent ♈ Aries
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2006 after 14 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 00:31 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 76 of Meeus index or 1029 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 44 minutes. It is 15 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 3 hours shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 9 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠2.9°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠19°.
1 day after point of perigee on 27 February 2006 at 20:27 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 13 March 2006 at 01:44 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 363 704 km (225 995 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 273 km (252 446 mi).
11 days after descending node on 16 February 2006 at 14:38 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 1 March 2006 at 16:25 in ♓ Pisces.
26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
5 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 7 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.
