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 ∠22° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1953" and ∠1930".
The Full Moon this days is the Worm of March 2063.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 781 of Meeus index or 1734 from Brown series.
Length of current 781 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 12 minutes. It is 3 hours and 10 minutes longer than next lunation 782 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 28 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 35 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠204.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠234.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
1 day after point of perigee on 13 March 2063 at 05:45 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 March 2063 at 07:06 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 366 981 km (228 031 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 402 km (251 905 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 13 March 2063 at 22:26 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 March 2063 at 21:01 in ♓ Pisces.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 8 March 2063 at 17:58 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.509°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.488° in the next southern standstill on 21 March 2063 at 12:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
