Lunar disc appears visually 4.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1845" and ∠1936".
The Full Moon this days is the Worm of March 2075.
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 929 of Meeus index or 1882 from Brown series.
Length of current 929 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. It is 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 930 length.
Length of current synodic month is equal to the mean length of synodic month. It is 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the 21st century shortest and 7 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the 21st century longest synodic month.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.5°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 24 February 2075 at 02:31 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 March 2075 at 13:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 388 468 km (241 383 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 071 km (229 951 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 26 February 2075 at 22:09 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 March 2075 at 03:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 26 February 2075 at 00:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.916°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.019° in the next southern standstill on 11 March 2075 at 10:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
