Lunar disc appears visually 8.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2092 after 11 days on 23 March 2092 at 17:15.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1140 of Meeus index or 2093 from Brown series.
Length of current 1140 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 45 minutes. It is 13 minutes shorter than next lunation 1141 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠106.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠140.8°. 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°).
14 days after point of perigee on 27 February 2092 at 05:27 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 March 2092 at 23:06 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 404 761 km (251 507 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 930 km (251 612 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 6 March 2092 at 07:01 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 March 2092 at 18:51 in ♌ Leo.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 2 March 2092 at 23:35 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.447°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.509° in the next northern standstill on 17 March 2092 at 07:54 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 23 March 2092 at 17:15 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
