Moon* ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 29 February 2008 at 02:18.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1878" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2008 after 15 days on 21 March 2008 at 18:40.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 100 of Meeus index or 1053 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 30 minutes. It is 2 hours and 49 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 46 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 17 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠280°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠310.8°.
7 days after point of apogee on 28 February 2008 at 01:27 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 10 March 2008 at 21:39 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 381 590 km (237 109 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 302 km (227 610 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 06:52 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 19 March 2008 at 02:53 in ♌ Leo.
At 06:52 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
5 days since the previous standstill on 1 March 2008 at 08:03 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.030°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.985° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 March 2008 at 11:33 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day on 7 March 2008 at 17:14 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
