Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 24 January 2092 at 14:55.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1887" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2092 after 27 days on 23 February 2092 at 05:29.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1138 of Meeus index or 2091 from Brown series.
Length of current 1138 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 26 minutes. It is 1 hour and 28 minutes shorter than next lunation 1139 length.
Length of current synodic month is 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠40.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠69.4°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 18 January 2092 at 05:57 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 February 2092 at 09:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 379 905 km (236 062 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 678 km (229 707 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 01:05 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 7 February 2092 at 23:08 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 01:05 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
3 days after previous North standstill on 22 January 2092 at 14:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.448°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.423° in the next southern standstill on 4 February 2092 at 17:30 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 12 days on 7 February 2092 at 15:03 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
