Crescent ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 29 January 2025 at 12:36.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2025 after 10 days on 12 February 2025 at 13:53.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 310 of Meeus index or 1263 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 56 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 35 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 34 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠305.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠329.3°.
Moon is at perigee at 02:43. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 21 January 2025 at 04:55 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 18 February 2025 at 01:11 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 367 457 km (228 327 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 949 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 899 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 1 February 2025 at 22:06 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 February 2025 at 06:53 in ♍ Virgo.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 26 January 2025 at 13:27 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.534°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.599° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 February 2025 at 10:40 in ♊ Gemini.
In 10 days on 12 February 2025 at 13:53 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.
