Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 22 February 2088 at 11:09.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2088 after 8 days on 7 March 2088 at 10:36.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1090 of Meeus index or 2043 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 51 minutes. It is 2 hours and 27 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 7 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 56 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠278.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠309.1°.
11 days 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 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 29 February 2088 at 14:18 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 365 525 km (227 127 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 370 217 km (230 042 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 04:19 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 11 March 2088 at 08:26 in ♏ Scorpio.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 16 February 2088 at 15:48 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.751°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.628° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 March 2088 at 05:13 in ♊ Gemini.
In 8 days on 7 March 2088 at 10:36 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
