Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1944".
The Full Moon this days is the Snow of February 2028.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 347 of Meeus index or 1300 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 25 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2028. It is 1 hour and 31 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 41 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 22 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠161.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠186.5°.
Moon is at perigee at 19:53. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 28 January 2028 at 15:31 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 24 February 2028 at 16:26 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 356 678 km (221 629 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2028. It is 5 830 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 253 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after descending node on 9 February 2028 at 08:56 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 22 February 2028 at 13:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 6 February 2028 at 12:59 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.601°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.565° at the point of next southern standstill on 19 February 2028 at 03:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
