Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1797" and ∠1934".
The Full Moon this days is the Worm of March 2034.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 422 of Meeus index or 1375 from Brown series.
Length of current 422 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 4 minutes. It is 1 hour and 53 minutes longer than next lunation 423 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 29 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠317.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠337.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
11 days after point of perigee on 21 February 2034 at 15:30 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 March 2034 at 16:05 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 398 861 km (247 841 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 268 km (251 822 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 21 February 2034 at 05:47 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 March 2034 at 14:21 in ♍ Virgo.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 27 February 2034 at 06:42 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.195°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.147° in the next southern standstill on 13 March 2034 at 19:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
