Moon* ♎ Libra
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1924".
The Full Moon this days is the Worm of March 2024.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 299 of Meeus index or 1252 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 20 minutes. It is 19 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 3 hours and 24 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 45 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠1.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠17.2°.
1 day after point of apogee on 23 March 2024 at 15:44 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 7 April 2024 at 17:53 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 405 364 km (251 882 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 14 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 850 km (222 979 mi).
12 days after ascending node on 12 March 2024 at 01:18 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 26 March 2024 at 04:07 in ♎ Libra.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 17 March 2024 at 14:45 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.526°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.559° at the point of next southern standstill on 1 April 2024 at 08:58 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
