Crescent ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 23 February 2020 at 15:32.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2020 after 13 days on 9 March 2020 at 17:48.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 249 of Meeus index or 1202 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 56 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2020. It is 58 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 5 hours and 12 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠152.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠177.9°.
14 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 26 February 2020 at 11:35 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 405 320 km (251 854 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 277 km (252 449 mi).
6 days after descending node on 19 February 2020 at 00:12 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 4 March 2020 at 14:58 in ♊ Gemini.
19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 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 8 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 13 days on 9 March 2020 at 17:48 in ♍ Virgo 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.
