Gibbous ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 5 February 2042 at 01:58.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2042 after 26 days on 6 March 2042 at 20:10.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 520 of Meeus index or 1473 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 57 minutes. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 47 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 22 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠326°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠344.2°.
Moon is at apogee at 21:14. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 23 January 2042 at 22:31 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 21 February 2042 at 05:54 in ♓ Pisces.
This apogee Moon is 405 668 km (252 070 mi) away from Earth. It is 260 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 041 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
11 days after ascending node on 27 January 2042 at 23:09 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 11 February 2042 at 04:28 in ♎ Libra.
11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 1 February 2042 at 18:31 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.833°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.949° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 February 2042 at 09:22 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 11 days on 20 February 2042 at 07:39 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
