Gibbous ♌ Leo
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1817" and ∠1951".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2039.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 482 of Meeus index or 1435 from Brown series.
Length of current 482 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 34 minutes. It is 1 hour and 7 minutes shorter than next lunation 483 length.
Length of current synodic month is 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 59 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠28.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠51.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
5 days after point of apogee on 5 January 2039 at 05:10 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 January 2039 at 05:35 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 394 508 km (245 136 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 856 km (227 954 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 8 January 2039 at 23:18 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 January 2039 at 05:13 in ♑ Capricorn.
1 day 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 9 January 2039 at 20:11 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.878°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.890° in the next southern standstill on 22 January 2039 at 23:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
