Crescent ♓ Pisces
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2023 after 15 days on 7 March 2023 at 12:40.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 07:06 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 286 of Meeus index or 1239 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 17 minutes. It is 32 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 27 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 42 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠15.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠34.1°.
1 day after point of perigee on 19 February 2023 at 09:06 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 3 March 2023 at 18:01 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 365 686 km (227 227 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 890 km (252 208 mi).
8 days after descending node on 12 February 2023 at 07:31 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 February 2023 at 18:56 in ♈ Aries.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 16 February 2023 at 14:36 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.629°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.716° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 March 2023 at 14:09 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
