Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 9 February 2079 at 03:11.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2079 after 5 days on 15 February 2079 at 23:45.
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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 978 of Meeus index or 1931 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 13 minutes. It is 2 hours and 32 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 29 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 34 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠261.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠296.6°.
14 days after point of apogee on 26 January 2079 at 21:03 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 11 February 2079 at 08:13 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 363 469 km (225 849 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 141 km (229 374 mi).
2 days after ascending node on 7 February 2079 at 23:17 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 21 February 2079 at 02:05 in ♏ Scorpio.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 30 January 2079 at 00:20 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.617°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠27.715° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 February 2079 at 07:40 in ♋ Cancer.
In 5 days on 15 February 2079 at 23:45 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
