Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2077 after 15 days on 9 March 2077 at 17:42.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 23:07 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 954 of Meeus index or 1907 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 18 minutes is the length of new lunation 954. It is 22 minutes longer than next lunation 955 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 26 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 43 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠355.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10.8°. 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 10 February 2077 at 02:41 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 February 2077 at 05:20 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 363 904 km (226 119 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 817 km (221 716 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 17 February 2077 at 08:19 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 March 2077 at 17:53 in ♊ Gemini.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 19 February 2077 at 06:40 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.259°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.349° in the next northern standstill on 3 March 2077 at 22:10 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
