Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 14 February 2088 at 12:24.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2088 after 19 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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
1 day after point of apogee on 15 February 2088 at 13:47 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 29 February 2088 at 14:18 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 405 145 km (251 745 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 370 217 km (230 042 mi).
3 days after ascending node on 13 February 2088 at 04:30 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 27 February 2088 at 04:19 in ♉ Taurus.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 15:48 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-19.751°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠19.628° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 1 March 2088 at 05:13.
In 5 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.
