Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 24 March 2018 at 15:35.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1945" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2018 after 3 days on 31 March 2018 at 12:37.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 225 of Meeus index or 1178 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 46 minutes. It is 2 hours and 55 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 2 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 7 hours and 1 minute shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠262.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠296.5°.
1 day after point of perigee on 26 March 2018 at 17:17 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 8 April 2018 at 05:32 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 368 506 km (228 979 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 145 km (251 124 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 27 March 2018 at 10:56 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 10 April 2018 at 08:09 in ♒ Aquarius.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 25 March 2018 at 02:04 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.210°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.320° at the point of next southern standstill on 7 April 2018 at 14:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 3 days on 31 March 2018 at 12:37 in ♎ Libra 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.
