Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 13 March 2095 at 00:18.
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 first ∠0° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1927".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2095 after 2 days on 21 March 2095 at 01:10.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1177 of Meeus index or 2130 from Brown series.
Length of current 1177 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 57 minutes. It is 27 minutes longer than next lunation 1178 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 47 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 22 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠9.2°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 6 March 2095 at 16:04 in ♓ Pisces. 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 20 March 2095 at 17:48 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 403 014 km (250 421 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 502 km (252 589 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 13 March 2095 at 02:33 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 March 2095 at 18:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 14 March 2095 at 10:35 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.438°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.592° in the next southern standstill on 29 March 2095 at 04:59 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 days on 21 March 2095 at 01:10 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
