Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 20 February 2044 at 20:20.
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 first ∠3° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2044 after 19 days on 13 March 2044 at 19:41.
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 545 of Meeus index or 1498 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours and 54 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 3 hours and 24 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 39 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠235.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠272.5°.
1 day after point of apogee on 22 February 2044 at 05:18 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 7 March 2044 at 20:36 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 404 835 km (251 553 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 930 km (229 864 mi).
8 days after descending node on 15 February 2044 at 03:48 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 February 2044 at 14:57 in ♓ Pisces.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 02:17 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-28.625°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠28.650° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 7 March 2044 at 16:53.
In 5 days on 28 February 2044 at 20:12 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.
