Gibbous ♎ Libra
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1789" and ∠1921".
The Full Moon this days is the Worm of March 2059.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 732 of Meeus index or 1685 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 23 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2059. It is 24 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 3 hours and 21 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 48 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠12.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠30°.
3 days after point of apogee on 25 March 2059 at 20:15 in ♌ Leo. 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 10 April 2059 at 13:47 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 400 568 km (248 901 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 666 km (224 729 mi).
10 days after ascending node on 18 March 2059 at 12:04 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 2 April 2059 at 02:16 in ♏ Scorpio.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 21 March 2059 at 15:46 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.421°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.541° at the point of next southern standstill on 5 April 2059 at 06:01 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
