Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1834" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2064 after 14 days on 4 January 2064 at 09:31.
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 20:04 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 791 of Meeus index or 1744 from Brown series.
29 days, 16 hours and 33 minutes is the length of new lunation 791. It is 1 hour and 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 792 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠88.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠125.9°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 17 December 2063 at 19:22 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 26 December 2063 at 09:48 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 390 723 km (242 784 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 532 km (251 365 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 11 December 2063 at 02:54 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 December 2063 at 11:46 in ♒ Aquarius.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 19 December 2063 at 14:21 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.752°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.781° in the next northern standstill on 3 January 2064 at 00:55 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
