Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 15 February 2020 at 22:17.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1810" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2020 after 17 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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
10 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 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 26 February 2020 at 11:35 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 396 021 km (246 076 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 277 km (252 449 mi).
2 days after descending node on 19 February 2020 at 00:12 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 4 March 2020 at 14:58 in ♊ Gemini.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 19 February 2020 at 08:58 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.319°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.441° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 March 2020 at 01:34 in ♋ Cancer.
In 2 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.
