Gibbous ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 5 March 2015 at 18:06.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2015 after 28 days on 4 April 2015 at 12:06.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 187 of Meeus index or 1140 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 49 minutes. It is 28 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 55 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 14 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠354.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠9.9°.
2 days after point of apogee on 5 March 2015 at 07:35 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 March 2015 at 19:38 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 403 538 km (250 747 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 584 km (222 192 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♎ Libra at 21:04 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 21 March 2015 at 02:19 in ♈ Aries.
At 21:04 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
8 days since the previous standstill on 27 February 2015 at 07:19 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.335°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.262° at the point of next southern standstill on 14 March 2015 at 01:39 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 12 days on 20 March 2015 at 09:36 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.
