Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1794" and ∠1944".
The Full Moon this days is the Snow of February 2058.
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 718 of Meeus index or 1671 from Brown series.
Length of current 718 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 42 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2058. It is 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 719 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 7 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠28.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
3 days after point of apogee on 5 February 2058 at 12:03 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 February 2058 at 06:06 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 399 569 km (248 281 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 268 km (224 482 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 3 February 2058 at 20:37 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 February 2058 at 00:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 5 February 2058 at 09:27 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.565°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.665° in the next southern standstill on 19 February 2058 at 08:23 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
