Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 20 January 2095 at 12:48.
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 ∠25° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2095 after 27 days on 19 February 2095 at 06:59.
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 1175 of Meeus index or 2128 from Brown series.
Length of current 1175 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 45 minutes longer than next lunation 1176 length.
Length of current synodic month is 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠317.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠337.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
13 days after point of perigee on 9 January 2095 at 02:21 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 January 2095 at 03:56 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 403 001 km (250 413 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 464 km (251 944 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 17 January 2095 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 February 2095 at 11:53 in ♐ Sagittarius.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 19 January 2095 at 00:03 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.116°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.164° in the next southern standstill on 2 February 2095 at 11:47 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 4 February 2095 at 21:28 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
