Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1933" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2049 after 16 days on 19 March 2049 at 12:23.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 13:16 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 607 of Meeus index or 1560 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 56 minutes is the length of new lunation 607. It is 32 minutes shorter than next lunation 608 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠20°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠39.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
1 day after point of perigee on 1 March 2049 at 12:45 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 March 2049 at 07:24 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 370 747 km (230 372 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 598 km (251 406 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 25 February 2049 at 20:27 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 March 2049 at 19:09 in ♊ Gemini.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 26 February 2049 at 03:09 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.575°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.452° in the next northern standstill on 11 March 2049 at 05:37 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
