Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 5 February 2078 at 03:00.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1853" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2078 after 17 days on 26 February 2078 at 17:50.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 965 of Meeus index or 1918 from Brown series.
Length of current 965 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 45 minutes. It is 2 hours and 6 minutes longer than next lunation 966 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 7 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠294.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠321.6°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 3 February 2078 at 05:07 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 February 2078 at 23:02 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 386 896 km (240 406 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 913 km (226 125 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 5 February 2078 at 19:13 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 February 2078 at 17:22 in ♉ Taurus.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 06:26 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-26.587°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.679° in its northern standstill point on 22 February 2078 at 00:30 in ♋ Cancer.
After 3 days on 12 February 2078 at 13:59 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
