Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1920" and ∠1935".
The Full Moon this days is the Worm of March 2083.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 23 February 2083 at 07:16 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 March 2083 at 02:14 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 373 365 km (231 998 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 030 km (226 819 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 2 March 2083 at 10:14 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 March 2083 at 05:07 in ♒ Aquarius.

6 days after previous North standstill on 26 February 2083 at 04:43 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.467°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.406° in the next southern standstill on 11 March 2083 at 05:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
