Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 5 March 2093 at 03:27.
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 ∠7° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1783" and ∠1932".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2093 after 3 days on 13 March 2093 at 04:06.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1152 of Meeus index or 2105 from Brown series.
Length of current 1152 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 12 minutes. It is 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 1153 length.
Length of current synodic month is 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠43.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠73.1°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 6 March 2093 at 14:56 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 March 2093 at 10:04 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 401 950 km (249 760 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 821 km (229 796 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 06:15 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 22 March 2093 at 12:52 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 06:15 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
2 days after previous North standstill on 7 March 2093 at 08:10 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.943°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.054° in the next southern standstill on 20 March 2093 at 23:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 days on 13 March 2093 at 04:06 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
