Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 27 February 2021 at 08:17.
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 ∠25° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2021 after 26 days on 28 March 2021 at 18:48.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 261 of Meeus index or 1214 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 15 minutes. It is 55 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 2 hours and 31 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 32 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠87°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠124.3°.
Moon is at perigee at 05:19. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 18 February 2021 at 10:22 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 18 March 2021 at 05:04 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 365 422 km (227 063 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 914 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 934 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after ascending node on 21 February 2021 at 01:44 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 6 March 2021 at 00:56 in ♐ Sagittarius.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 23 February 2021 at 00:12 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.056°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.161° at the point of next southern standstill on 7 March 2021 at 20:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 10 days on 13 March 2021 at 10:21 in ♓ Pisces 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.
