Crescent ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 28 January 2082 at 20:46.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2082 after 11 days on 13 February 2082 at 06:16.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1015 of Meeus index or 1968 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 2 minutes. It is 14 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠122.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠154.1°.
14 days after point of perigee on 17 January 2082 at 16:31 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 2 February 2082 at 18:11 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 405 097 km (251 716 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 315 km (251 851 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 31 January 2082 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 14 February 2082 at 00:16 in ♍ Virgo.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 25 January 2082 at 12:10 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.230°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.278° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 February 2082 at 02:32 in ♊ Gemini.
In 11 days on 13 February 2082 at 06:16 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.
