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 first ∠4° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1936".
The Full Moon this days is the Worm of March 2037.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 459 of Meeus index or 1412 from Brown series.
Length of current 459 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 42 minutes. It is 2 hours and 11 minutes longer than next lunation 460 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠173.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠197.5°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 19:48, this is 13 days after last apogee on 15 February 2037 at 23:45 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 15 March 2037 at 01:18 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 356 710 km (221 649 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2037. It is 5 798 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 285 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 27 February 2037 at 18:35 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 12 March 2037 at 19:15 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.
3 days after previous North standstill on 25 February 2037 at 22:25 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.631°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.688° in the next southern standstill on 10 March 2037 at 14:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
