Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 16 February 2083 at 18:15.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1774" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2083 after 10 days on 4 March 2083 at 07:34.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1028 of Meeus index or 1981 from Brown series.
Length of current 1028 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 41 minutes. It is 32 minutes shorter than next lunation 1029 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠89.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠126.4°. 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 8 February 2083 at 11:16 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 February 2083 at 07:16 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 404 155 km (251 130 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 622 km (251 420 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 15 February 2083 at 23:06 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 March 2083 at 10:14 in ♌ Leo.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 11 February 2083 at 23:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.496°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.467° in the next northern standstill on 26 February 2083 at 04:43 in ♊ Gemini.
After 10 days on 4 March 2083 at 07:34 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
