Crescent ♓ Pisces
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1883" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2079 after 14 days on 17 March 2079 at 13:45.
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 13:49 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 979 of Meeus index or 1932 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 41 minutes is the length of new lunation 979. It is 2 hours and 14 minutes longer than next lunation 980 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠296.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠322.3°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 23 February 2079 at 18:10 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 March 2079 at 01:47 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 380 713 km (236 564 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 876 km (229 209 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 21 February 2079 at 02:05 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 March 2079 at 01:24 in ♉ Taurus.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 26 February 2079 at 08:11 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.818°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.915° in the next northern standstill on 11 March 2079 at 13:15 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
