Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1943".
The Full Moon this days is the Snow of February 2033.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 409 of Meeus index or 1362 from Brown series.
Length of current 409 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 24 minutes. It is 56 minutes longer than next lunation 410 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠336.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠353°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
13 days after point of perigee on 1 February 2033 at 07:27 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 February 2033 at 19:57 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 403 648 km (250 815 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 072 km (252 321 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 4 February 2033 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 February 2033 at 01:22 in ♎ Libra.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 9 February 2033 at 07:09 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.889°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.763° in the next southern standstill on 24 February 2033 at 01:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
