Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 18 February 2030 at 06:20.
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 first ∠0° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2030 after 25 days on 19 March 2030 at 17:56.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 372 of Meeus index or 1325 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 27 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute 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 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠67.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠104.1°.
Moon is at perigee at 10:01. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 10 February 2030 at 06:06 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 10 March 2030 at 02:23 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 368 405 km (228 916 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 897 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 951 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after descending node on 13 February 2030 at 04:07 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 February 2030 at 05:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 12 February 2030 at 17:24 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.393°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.278° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 February 2030 at 22:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 9 days on 4 March 2030 at 06:35 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.
