Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 8 February 2081 at 20:17.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2081 after 13 days on 23 February 2081 at 14:27.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1003 of Meeus index or 1956 from Brown series.
Length of current 1003 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 1 minute. It is 2 hours and 2 minutes longer than next lunation 1004 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠177.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠202.2°. 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 apogee on 9 February 2081 at 03:24 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 February 2081 at 06:18 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 404 626 km (251 423 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 862 km (221 744 mi).
13 days after its descending node on 28 January 2081 at 10:41 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 February 2081 at 16:49 in ♓ Pisces.

5 days after previous South standstill on 4 February 2081 at 13:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.557°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.630° in the next northern standstill on 19 February 2081 at 03:19 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 23 February 2081 at 14:27 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
