Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 99%. The 15 days old Moon is in ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 4 February 2061 at 15:22 UTC.
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♍ Virgo later.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1856" and ∠1946".
The Full Moon this days is the Snow of February 2061.
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 755 of Meeus index or 1708 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 15 minutes. It is 2 hours and 23 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 1 hour and 31 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 32 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠265.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠299.9°.
5 days after point of perigee on 30 January 2061 at 14:53 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 12 February 2061 at 05:47 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 386 211 km (239 980 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 249 km (251 189 mi).
8 days after ascending node on 27 January 2061 at 14:07 in ♈ Aries. 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 9 February 2061 at 17:58 in ♎ Libra.
8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 1 February 2061 at 14:36 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.115°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.209° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 February 2061 at 18:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
