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 ∠16° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1935".
The Full Moon this days is the Worm of March 2064.
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 793 of Meeus index or 1746 from Brown series.
Length of current 793 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 42 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2064. It is 1 hour and 25 minutes longer than next lunation 794 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠181.6°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 17:31, this is 12 days after last apogee on 19 February 2064 at 18:41 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 17 March 2064 at 21:10 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 356 969 km (221 810 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 539 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 387 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 2 March 2064 at 02:40 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 March 2064 at 05:39 in ♒ Aquarius.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 26 February 2064 at 20:13 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.859°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.823° in the next southern standstill on 10 March 2064 at 08:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
