Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2075 after 20 days on 1 April 2075 at 08:45.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 10 March 2075 at 13:32 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 March 2075 at 23:11 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 364 416 km (226 438 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 257 km (251 194 mi).
12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 March 2075 at 03:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 10:20 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-22.019°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.138° in its northern standstill point on 25 March 2075 at 08:07 in ♋ Cancer.
After 5 days on 16 March 2075 at 19:25 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
