Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 25 February 2030 at 01:58.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1954" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2030 after 21 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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
4 days after point of perigee on 22 February 2030 at 10:01 in ♎ Libra. 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 10 March 2030 at 02:23 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 366 897 km (227 979 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 748 km (251 499 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 05:23 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 12 March 2030 at 06:43 in ♊ Gemini.
At 05:23 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
1 day since the previous standstill on 25 February 2030 at 22:24 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.278°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.130° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 March 2030 at 01:51 in ♊ Gemini.
In 5 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.
