Moon* ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 2 February 2005 at 07:27.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2005 after 16 days on 24 February 2005 at 04:54.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 62 of Meeus index or 1015 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 25 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2005. It is 17 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 50 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠1.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠17.1°.
Moon is at perigee at 22:09. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 23 January 2005 at 18:54 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 20 February 2005 at 04:59 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 358 564 km (222 801 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 944 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 792 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
6 days after descending node on 31 January 2005 at 22:49 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 13 February 2005 at 10:25 in ♈ Aries.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 5 February 2005 at 21:10 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.071°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.152° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 February 2005 at 01:13 in ♋ Cancer.
In 1 day on 8 February 2005 at 22:28 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
