Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 4 February 2095 at 21:28.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1959" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2095 after 9 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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1176 of Meeus index or 2129 from Brown series.
Length of current 1176 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 10 minutes. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes longer than next lunation 1177 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 35 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠337.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 6 February 2095 at 05:16 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 February 2095 at 16:10 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 365 936 km (227 382 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 233 km (252 421 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 1 February 2095 at 11:53 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 February 2095 at 01:55 in ♊ Gemini.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 2 February 2095 at 11:47 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.164°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.215° in the next northern standstill on 15 February 2095 at 05:25 in ♋ Cancer.
After 9 days on 19 February 2095 at 06:59 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
