Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 19 February 2095 at 06:59.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2095 after 27 days on 21 March 2095 at 01:10.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1176 of Meeus index or 2129 from Brown series.
Length of current 1176 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 10 minutes. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes longer than next lunation 1177 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 35 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠337.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 16:10, this is 15 days after last perigee on 6 February 2095 at 05:16 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 6 March 2095 at 16:04 in ♓ Pisces.
This apogee Moon is 406 233 km (252 421 mi) away from Earth. It is 825 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 476 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
7 days after its ascending node on 14 February 2095 at 01:55 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 February 2095 at 16:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 15 February 2095 at 05:25 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.215°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.337° in the next southern standstill on 1 March 2095 at 21:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 12 days on 6 March 2095 at 07:39 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
