Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1873" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2094 after 9 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 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1164 of Meeus index or 2117 from Brown series.
Length of current 1164 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 1 minute. It is 8 minutes longer than next lunation 1165 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 26 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠24.6°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 14 February 2094 at 18:39 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 February 2094 at 15:03 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 382 645 km (237 765 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 118 km (252 350 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 12 February 2094 at 12:56 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 February 2094 at 12:58 in ♋ Cancer.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 12 February 2094 at 06:09 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.529°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.582° in the next northern standstill on 25 February 2094 at 05:34 in ♋ Cancer.
After 9 days on 2 March 2094 at 07:35 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
