Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 9 February 2098 at 06:16.
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 ∠7° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2098 after 3 days on 15 February 2098 at 21:00.
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 1213 of Meeus index or 2166 from Brown series.
Length of current 1213 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours and 23 minutes longer than next lunation 1214 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠197°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠225.5°. 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 30 January 2098 at 12:32 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 February 2098 at 18:30 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 364 252 km (226 336 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 746 km (222 914 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 7 February 2098 at 09:03 in ♈ Aries, 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 19 February 2098 at 21:18 in ♎ Libra.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 08:06 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.051°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.136° in its southern standstill point on 25 February 2098 at 10:08 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 days on 15 February 2098 at 21:00 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
