Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2035 after 19 days on 23 March 2035 at 22:42.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 434 of Meeus index or 1387 from Brown series.
Length of current 434 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 435 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠255.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠291.6°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 2 March 2035 at 09:34 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 March 2035 at 01:35 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 403 302 km (250 600 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 413 km (229 543 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 23 February 2035 at 04:20 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 March 2035 at 15:01 in ♓ Pisces.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 01:09 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.382°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2035. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.394° in its northern standstill point on 17 March 2035 at 10:06 in ♋ Cancer.
After 5 days on 9 March 2035 at 23:09 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
