Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 9 February 2083 at 16:39.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1878" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2083 after 16 days on 4 March 2083 at 07:34.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 8 February 2083 at 11:16 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 February 2083 at 07:16 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 381 751 km (237 209 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 622 km (251 420 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 23:06 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 2 March 2083 at 10:14 in ♌ Leo.
At 23:06 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
3 days after previous South standstill on 11 February 2083 at 23:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.496°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.467° in the next northern standstill on 26 February 2083 at 04:43 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day 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.
