Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 6 February 2044 at 13:46.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2044 after 3 days on 13 February 2044 at 06:42.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 545 of Meeus index or 1498 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours and 54 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 3 hours and 24 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 39 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠235.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠272.5°.
15 days after point of apogee on 25 January 2044 at 09:32 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 10 February 2044 at 10:42 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 363 686 km (225 984 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 312 km (226 994 mi).
7 days after ascending node on 2 February 2044 at 08:49 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 February 2044 at 03:48 in ♍ Virgo.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 10:49 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠28.576°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-28.625° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 23 February 2044 at 02:17.
In 3 days on 13 February 2044 at 06:42 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.
