Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 22 December 2062 at 23:40.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1849" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2063 after 19 days on 14 January 2063 at 19:11.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 778 of Meeus index or 1731 from Brown series.
Length of current 778 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 minutes shorter than next lunation 779 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 12 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠123°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠154.3°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 08:56, this is 20 days after last apogee on 5 December 2062 at 19:32 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 6 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 2 January 2063 at 10:03 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 356 616 km (221 591 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2062. It is 5 892 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 191 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 21 December 2062 at 21:32 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 January 2063 at 05:33 in ♓ Pisces.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 16 December 2062 at 13:49 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.313°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.306° in the next southern standstill on 29 December 2062 at 18:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 4 days on 30 December 2062 at 16:57 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
