Moon ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 18 March 2081 at 09:27.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1924".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2081 after 1 day on 25 March 2081 at 00:29.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1004 of Meeus index or 1957 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 58 minutes. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 49 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠202.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠231.2°.
Moon is at perigee at 16:38. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 8 March 2081 at 06:10 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 4 April 2081 at 19:49 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 359 723 km (223 522 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 785 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 633 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 days after ascending node on 10 March 2081 at 22:30 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 March 2081 at 07:17 in ♍ Virgo.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 18 March 2081 at 10:34 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.673°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.653° at the point of next southern standstill on 31 March 2081 at 02:35 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 1 day on 25 March 2081 at 00:29 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
