Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2073 after 14 days on 22 February 2073 at 07:26.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 01:40 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 904 of Meeus index or 1857 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 35 minutes is the length of new lunation 904. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2073. It is 37 minutes longer than next lunation 905 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 51 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 12 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠140.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠168.4°. 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°).
12 days after point of perigee on 25 January 2073 at 21:07 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 February 2073 at 19:47 in ♓ Pisces.

3 days after previous South standstill on 3 February 2073 at 17:41 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.012°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.995° in the next northern standstill on 18 February 2073 at 09:14 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
