Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" 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 15 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 1 March 2037 at 19:48 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 March 2037 at 01:18 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 363 784 km (226 045 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 442 km (252 551 mi).
2 days 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 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 March 2037 at 19:15 in ♒ Aquarius.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 25 February 2037 at 22:25 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.631°. Next 8 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.
