Crescent ♈ Aries
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1817" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2027 after 13 days on 22 March 2027 at 10:44.
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 09:29 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 336 of Meeus index or 1289 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 22 minutes. It is 3 hours and 15 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 38 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 25 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠242.4°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠278.5°.
5 days after point of apogee on 3 March 2027 at 05:41 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 March 2027 at 04:31 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 394 383 km (245 058 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 440 km (227 695 mi).
2 days after ascending node on 6 March 2027 at 04:41 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 March 2027 at 13:05 in ♌ Leo.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 1 March 2027 at 09:41 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.684°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.611° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 March 2027 at 14:15 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
