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 ∠24° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1925" and ∠1930".
The Full Moon this days is the Worm of March 2036.
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 447 of Meeus index or 1400 from Brown series.
Length of current 447 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 57 minutes. It is 3 hours and 21 minutes longer than next lunation 448 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠223.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠258.5°. 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 perigee on 10 March 2036 at 02:38 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 March 2036 at 21:41 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 372 276 km (231 322 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 752 km (251 501 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 10 March 2036 at 13:58 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 March 2036 at 11:54 in ♒ Aquarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 7 March 2036 at 07:25 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.281°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.336° in the next southern standstill on 20 March 2036 at 12:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
