Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 29 January 2046 at 04:11.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1891" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2046 after 21 days on 20 February 2046 at 23:44.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 569 of Meeus index or 1522 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 46 minutes. It is 20 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 6 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠129.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠159.4°.
6 days after point of perigee on 23 January 2046 at 19:02 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 8 February 2046 at 05:11 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 379 132 km (235 582 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 331 km (252 482 mi).
7 days after descending node on 23 January 2046 at 06:24 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 5 February 2046 at 15:45 in ♒ Aquarius.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 19 January 2046 at 18:56 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.297°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-27.313° at the point of next southern standstill on 1 February 2046 at 11:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 6 days on 5 February 2046 at 23:10 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
