Quarter* ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 6 February 2088 at 21:33.
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 ∠14° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1778" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2088 after 22 days on 7 March 2088 at 10:36.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1089 of Meeus index or 2042 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 31 minutes. It is 2 hours and 40 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 2 hours and 47 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 16 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠241.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠278.3°.
9 days after point of perigee on 3 February 2088 at 18:12 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 15 February 2088 at 13:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 403 204 km (250 539 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 404 km (251 285 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 04:30 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 27 February 2088 at 04:19 in ♉ Taurus.
At 04:30 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
10 days since the previous standstill on 2 February 2088 at 22:41 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.864°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.751° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 February 2088 at 15:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 8 days on 22 February 2088 at 11:09 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.
