Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 13 February 2082 at 06:16.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2082 after 28 days on 14 March 2082 at 16:45.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1015 of Meeus index or 1968 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 2 minutes. It is 14 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠122.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠154.1°.
Moon is at perigee at 17:46. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 2 February 2082 at 18:11 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 2 March 2082 at 08:00 in ♈ Aries.
This perigee Moon is 360 321 km (223 893 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 187 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 035 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 00:16 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 27 February 2082 at 08:13 in ♓ Pisces.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 9 February 2082 at 02:32 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.278°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.301° at the point of next southern standstill on 21 February 2082 at 17:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 13 days on 27 February 2082 at 14:48 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
