Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 9 February 2079 at 03:11.
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 ∠8° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1953" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2079 after 3 days on 15 February 2079 at 23:45.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 978 of Meeus index or 1931 from Brown series.
Length of current 978 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 13 minutes. It is 2 hours and 32 minutes longer than next lunation 979 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 34 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠261.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠296.6°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 11 February 2079 at 08:13 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 February 2079 at 18:10 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 366 963 km (228 020 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 236 km (251 181 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 7 February 2079 at 23:17 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 February 2079 at 02:05 in ♏ Scorpio.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 07:40 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠27.715°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-27.818° in its southern standstill point on 26 February 2079 at 08:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 days on 15 February 2079 at 23:45 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
