Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 31 January 2094 at 12:36.
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.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2094 after 27 days on 2 March 2094 at 07:35.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1163 of Meeus index or 2116 from Brown series.
Length of current 1163 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 38 minutes. It is 37 minutes longer than next lunation 1164 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 3 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠352.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠7.9°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 31 January 2094 at 11:51 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 February 2094 at 18:39 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 403 640 km (250 810 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 191 km (221 948 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 29 January 2094 at 09:03 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 February 2094 at 12:56 in ♑ Capricorn.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 28 January 2094 at 23:58 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.474°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.529° in the next southern standstill on 12 February 2094 at 06:09 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 12 days on 15 February 2094 at 05:43 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
