Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 10 February 2030 at 11:49.
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 ∠10° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1806" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2030 after 3 days on 18 February 2030 at 06:20.
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 372 of Meeus index or 1325 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 27 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute 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 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠67.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠104.1°.
4 days after point of apogee on 10 February 2030 at 06:06 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 22 February 2030 at 10:01 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 396 880 km (246 610 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 405 km (228 916 mi).
1 day after descending node on 13 February 2030 at 04:07 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 February 2030 at 05:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 12 February 2030 at 17:24 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.393°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.278° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 February 2030 at 22:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 3 days on 18 February 2030 at 06:20 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.
