Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 29 January 2063 at 12:23.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1798" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2063 after 10 days on 13 February 2063 at 05:48.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 780 of Meeus index or 1733 from Brown series.
Length of current 780 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 15 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2063. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 781 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 31 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 32 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠179.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠204.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
3 days after point of apogee on 29 January 2063 at 13:00 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 February 2063 at 19:32 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 398 564 km (247 656 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 965 km (221 808 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 1 February 2063 at 08:33 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 February 2063 at 11:10 in ♍ Virgo.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 25 January 2063 at 23:21 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.406°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.472° in the next northern standstill on 9 February 2063 at 10:17 in ♊ Gemini.
After 10 days on 13 February 2063 at 05:48 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
