Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 15 February 2092 at 11:40.
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 ∠3° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1793" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2092 after 4 days on 23 February 2092 at 05:29.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1139 of Meeus index or 2092 from Brown series.
Length of current 1139 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 54 minutes. It is 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 1140 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠69.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠106.4°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 15 February 2092 at 03:05 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 February 2092 at 05:27 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 399 863 km (248 463 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 045 km (228 693 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 7 February 2092 at 23:08 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 February 2092 at 09:49 in ♌ Leo.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 23:14 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠19.419°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2092. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-19.447° in its southern standstill point on 2 March 2092 at 23:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 4 days on 23 February 2092 at 05:29 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
