Gibbous ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 12 February 2019 at 22:26.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2019 after 2 days on 19 February 2019 at 15:53.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 236 of Meeus index or 1189 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 1 minute. It is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 6 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 47 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠175.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠200.2°.
12 days after point of apogee on 5 February 2019 at 09:26 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 February 2019 at 09:06 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 364 844 km (226 704 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 762 km (221 682 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 09:42 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 2 March 2019 at 11:03 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 09:42 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
1 day since the previous standstill on 16 February 2019 at 09:56 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.590°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.642° at the point of next southern standstill on 1 March 2019 at 06:23 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 2 days on 19 February 2019 at 15:53 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
