Gibbous ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 8 March 2014 at 13:27.
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 about ∠23° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2014 after 5 days on 16 March 2014 at 17:09.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 175 of Meeus index or 1128 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 45 minutes. It is 45 minutes shorter 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 1 hour and 59 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 10 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠25.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠46.9°.
Moon is at apogee at 19:46. It is 11 days after previous perigee on 27 February 2014 at 19:52 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next perigee on 27 March 2014 at 18:30 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 405 367 km (251 883 mi) away from Earth. It is 41 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 342 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
6 days after descending node on 4 March 2014 at 17:45 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 19 March 2014 at 06:30 in ♎ Libra.
19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 8 March 2014 at 22:54 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.084°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.997° at the point of next southern standstill on 23 March 2014 at 07:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 5 days on 16 March 2014 at 17:09 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.
