Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2088 after 3 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 11 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°.
Moon is at perigee at 18:12. It is 16 days after previous apogee on 18 January 2088 at 17:28 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 15 February 2088 at 13:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 366 292 km (227 603 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 784 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 064 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after descending node on 31 January 2088 at 03:49 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 13 February 2088 at 04:30 in ♏ Scorpio.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 2 February 2088 at 22:41 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.864°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.751° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 February 2088 at 15:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 3 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.
