Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1953" and ∠1943".
The Full Moon this days is the Snow of February 2082.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle 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°.
10 days after point of apogee on 2 February 2082 at 18:11 in ♈ Aries. 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 14 February 2082 at 17:46 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 367 054 km (228 077 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 321 km (223 893 mi).
13 days after ascending node on 31 January 2082 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 14 February 2082 at 00:16 in ♍ Virgo.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 9 February 2082 at 02:32 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.278°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.301° at the point of next southern standstill on 21 February 2082 at 17:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
