Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 2 February 2083 at 18:20.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2083 after 23 days on 4 March 2083 at 07:34.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1027 of Meeus index or 1980 from Brown series.
Length of current 1027 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 1028 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠55.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠89.1°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 11:16, this is 13 days after last apogee on 26 January 2083 at 10:16 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 23 February 2083 at 07:16 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 369 927 km (229 862 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2083. It is 7 419 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 429 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
5 days after its descending node on 3 February 2083 at 00:47 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 February 2083 at 23:06 in ♒ Aquarius.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 29 January 2083 at 19:57 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.490°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.496° in the next southern standstill on 11 February 2083 at 23:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 8 days on 16 February 2083 at 18:15 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
