Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 22 February 2094 at 02:36.
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 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1780" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2094 after 4 days on 2 March 2094 at 07:35.
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 1164 of Meeus index or 2117 from Brown series.
Length of current 1164 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 1 minute. It is 8 minutes longer than next lunation 1165 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 26 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠24.6°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 14 February 2094 at 18:39 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 February 2094 at 15:03 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 402 601 km (250 165 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 118 km (252 350 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 12:58 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 11 March 2094 at 18:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 12:58 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 05:34 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.582°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.707° in its southern standstill point on 11 March 2094 at 14:07 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 4 days on 2 March 2094 at 07:35 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
