Moon ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 14 March 2019 at 10:27.
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 ∠7° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1927".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2019 after 1 day on 21 March 2019 at 01:43.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 237 of Meeus index or 1190 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 52 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 4 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠200.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠228.7°.
Moon is at perigee at 19:47. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 4 March 2019 at 11:25 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 1 April 2019 at 00:14 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 359 381 km (223 309 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 127 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 975 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after ascending node on 16 March 2019 at 16:22 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 29 March 2019 at 13:08 in ♑ Capricorn.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 15 March 2019 at 17:59 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.761°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.863° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 March 2019 at 13:02 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day on 21 March 2019 at 01:43 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.
