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.
Length of current 1015 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 2 minutes. It is 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 1016 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠122.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠154.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
10 days after point of apogee on 2 February 2082 at 18:11 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 February 2082 at 17:46 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 367 054 km (228 077 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 321 km (223 893 mi).
13 days after its ascending node on 31 January 2082 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 February 2082 at 00:16 in ♍ Virgo.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 9 February 2082 at 02:32 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.278°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.301° in the next southern standstill on 21 February 2082 at 17:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
