Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 15 March 2046 at 17:13.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1927".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2046 after 2 days on 22 March 2046 at 09:27.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 571 of Meeus index or 1524 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 36 minutes. It is 2 hours and 32 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 4 hours and 52 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 11 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠184.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠209.1°.
12 days after point of apogee on 7 March 2046 at 06:49 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 March 2046 at 18:59 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 365 075 km (226 847 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 400 km (222 078 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 03:00 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 1 April 2046 at 00:32 in ♒ Aquarius.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 15 March 2046 at 12:23 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.160°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.076° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 March 2046 at 00:39 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 days on 22 March 2046 at 09:27 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
