Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 26 February 2091 at 14:47.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1876" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2091 after 4 days on 5 March 2091 at 15:59.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1127 of Meeus index or 2080 from Brown series.
Length of current 1127 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 7 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2091. It is 33 minutes longer than next lunation 1128 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 23 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠137.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠165.8°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 22 February 2091 at 08:37 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 March 2091 at 16:02 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 382 154 km (237 459 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 572 km (222 806 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 19 February 2091 at 08:56 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 March 2091 at 10:19 in ♍ Virgo.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 28 February 2091 at 16:49 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.473°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.480° in the next southern standstill on 13 March 2091 at 06:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 4 days on 5 March 2091 at 15:59 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
