Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 97% and growing larger. The 13 days young Moon is in ♌ Leo.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 2 March 2058 at 05:10.
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 leaving the last ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♍ Virgo later.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1787" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2058 after 1 day on 10 March 2058 at 08:52.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 719 of Meeus index or 1672 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 53 minutes. It is 46 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 18 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠28.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠50.9°.
3 days after point of apogee on 5 March 2058 at 03:58 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 March 2058 at 01:53 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 401 097 km (249 230 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 648 km (227 825 mi).
5 days after ascending node on 2 March 2058 at 22:25 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 17 March 2058 at 01:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 4 March 2058 at 15:47 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.758°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.900° at the point of next southern standstill on 18 March 2058 at 14:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day on 10 March 2058 at 08:52 in ♍ Virgo 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.
