Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2035 after 14 days on 23 January 2035 at 20:16.
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 15:03 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 433 of Meeus index or 1386 from Brown series.
29 days, 17 hours and 19 minutes is the length of new lunation 433. It is 2 hours and 32 minutes longer than next lunation 434 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠220.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠255.7°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 5 January 2035 at 18:52 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 January 2035 at 18:05 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 400 375 km (248 781 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 707 km (225 376 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 30 December 2034 at 13:10 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 January 2035 at 03:01 in ♓ Pisces.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 8 January 2035 at 08:12 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.547°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.494° in the next northern standstill on 21 January 2035 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
