Quarter* ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 9 February 2020 at 07:33.
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 ∠7° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1956" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2020 after 24 days on 9 March 2020 at 17:48.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 248 of Meeus index or 1201 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 50 minutes. It is 6 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 5 hours and 6 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 57 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠120.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠152.6°.
3 days after point of perigee on 10 February 2020 at 20:31 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 26 February 2020 at 11:35 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 366 494 km (227 729 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 277 km (252 449 mi).
8 days after ascending node on 6 February 2020 at 08:59 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 February 2020 at 00:12 in ♑ Capricorn.
8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 6 February 2020 at 16:10 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.268°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.319° at the point of next southern standstill on 19 February 2020 at 08:58 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 9 days on 23 February 2020 at 15:32 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
