Moon phase on 13 February 2063 Tuesday is Full Moon, 15 days old Moon is in Leo.Share this page: twitter facebook linkedin
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1943".
The Full Moon this days is the Snow of February 2063.
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 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 12 February 2063 at 19:32 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 February 2063 at 16:30 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 364 057 km (226 215 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 312 km (252 471 mi).
12 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 February 2063 at 11:10 in ♍ Virgo.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 9 February 2063 at 10:17 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.472°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.506° in the next southern standstill on 22 February 2063 at 05:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
