Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 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.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2044 after 2 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 11 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°.
Moon is at perigee at 10:42. It is 16 days after previous apogee on 25 January 2044 at 09:32 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 22 February 2044 at 05:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 365 312 km (226 994 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 804 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 044 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
8 days after ascending node on 2 February 2044 at 08:49 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 February 2044 at 03:48 in ♍ Virgo.
8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 9 February 2044 at 10:49 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.576°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.625° at the point of next southern standstill on 23 February 2044 at 02:17 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 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.
