Crescent ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 12 February 2078 at 13:59.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1959" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2078 after 12 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 966 of Meeus index or 1919 from Brown series.
Length of current 966 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 32 minutes longer than next lunation 967 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠321.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠340.7°. 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 perigee on this date at 23:02, this is 11 days after last apogee on 3 February 2078 at 05:07 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 2 March 2078 at 22:52 in ♎ Libra.
This perigee Moon is 363 913 km (226 125 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 405 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 443 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
8 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 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 February 2078 at 17:22 in ♉ Taurus.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 9 February 2078 at 06:26 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.587°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.679° in the next northern standstill on 22 February 2078 at 00:30 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 26 February 2078 at 17:50 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
