Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 31 January 2088 at 03:33.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2088 after 5 days on 6 February 2088 at 21:33.
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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1089 of Meeus index or 2042 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 31 minutes. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 47 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 16 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠241.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠278.3°.
13 days after point of apogee on 18 January 2088 at 17:28 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 3 February 2088 at 18:12 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 363 434 km (225 827 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 292 km (227 603 mi).
1 day after descending node on 31 January 2088 at 03:49 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 13 February 2088 at 04:30 in ♏ Scorpio.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 20 January 2088 at 07:04 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.974°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠19.864° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 February 2088 at 22:41 in ♊ Gemini.
In 5 days on 6 February 2088 at 21:33 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.
