Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 12 February 2038 at 09:30.
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 ∠16° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1873" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2038 after 3 days on 19 February 2038 at 16:09.
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 471 of Meeus index or 1424 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 23 minutes. It is 5 minutes 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 4 hours and 39 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 24 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠117.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠149.9°.
7 days after point of apogee on 9 February 2038 at 10:00 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 February 2038 at 08:05 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 382 623 km (237 751 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 960 km (224 290 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 17:30 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 1 March 2038 at 08:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 17:30 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
At 04:53 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.250°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.311° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 28 February 2038 at 20:34.
In 3 days on 19 February 2038 at 16:09 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.
