The Full Moon this days is the Snow of February 2092.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.

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°).
8 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 February 2092 at 05:27 in ♏ Scorpio.

1 day after its ascending node on 22 February 2092 at 09:49 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 March 2092 at 07:01 in ♒ Aquarius.

4 days after previous North standstill on 18 February 2092 at 23:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.419°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.447° in the next southern standstill on 2 March 2092 at 23:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
