Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 11 February 2095 at 12:17.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1814" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2095 after 2 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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
10 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 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 February 2095 at 16:10 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 395 222 km (245 580 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 233 km (252 421 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 14 February 2095 at 01:55 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 February 2095 at 16:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 15 February 2095 at 05:25 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.215°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.337° in the next southern standstill on 1 March 2095 at 21:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 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.
