Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2066 after 15 days on 11 January 2066 at 15:07.
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 08:27 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 816 of Meeus index or 1769 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 47 minutes is the length of new lunation 816. It is 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 817 length.
Length of current synodic month is 57 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 12 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠16.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠35.6°. 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°).
16 days after point of apogee on 11 December 2065 at 06:28 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 January 2066 at 15:46 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 365 799 km (227 297 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 716 km (252 100 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 15 December 2065 at 01:34 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 December 2065 at 03:31 in ♑ Capricorn.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 26 December 2065 at 06:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.485°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.491° in the next northern standstill on 8 January 2066 at 23:20 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
