Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 17 January 2060 at 17:14.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1800" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2060 after 27 days on 16 February 2060 at 09:56.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 742 of Meeus index or 1695 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 53 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 2 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 7 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠297.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠323.8°.
11 days after point of perigee on 8 January 2060 at 01:42 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 23 January 2060 at 16:37 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 398 142 km (247 394 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 707 km (251 473 mi).
7 days after ascending node on 12 January 2060 at 08:04 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 26 January 2060 at 11:07 in ♏ Scorpio.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 16 January 2060 at 03:50 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.171°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.245° at the point of next southern standstill on 30 January 2060 at 15:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 13 days on 2 February 2060 at 05:22 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.
