Crescent ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days 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 ∠22° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2081 after 12 days on 23 February 2081 at 14:27.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 2 days 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.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 1 minute. It is 2 hours and 2 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 6 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 47 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠177.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠202.2°.
2 days after point of apogee on 9 February 2081 at 03:24 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 February 2081 at 06:18 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 402 904 km (250 353 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 862 km (221 744 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 16:49 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 24 February 2081 at 20:03 in ♍ Virgo.
At 16:49 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
6 days since the previous standstill on 4 February 2081 at 13:10 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.557°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.630° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 February 2081 at 03:19 in ♊ Gemini.
In 12 days on 23 February 2081 at 14:27 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.
