Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1916" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2033 after 14 days on 15 January 2033 at 13:07.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 10:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 408 of Meeus index or 1361 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes is the length of new lunation 408. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer than next lunation 409 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠315.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠336.6°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 23 December 2032 at 11:34 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 January 2033 at 05:24 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 374 163 km (232 494 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 354 km (227 020 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 26 December 2032 at 21:36 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 January 2033 at 18:31 in ♈ Aries.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 31 December 2032 at 03:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.115°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.075° in the next northern standstill on 13 January 2033 at 00:33 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
