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 first ∠2° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1807" and ∠1951".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2066.
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 816 of Meeus index or 1769 from Brown series.
Length of current 816 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 47 minutes. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 7 January 2066 at 15:46 in ♉ Taurus. 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 23 January 2066 at 15:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 396 745 km (246 526 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 177 km (225 668 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 11 January 2066 at 07:55 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 January 2066 at 14:22 in ♑ Capricorn.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 8 January 2066 at 23:20 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.491°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.483° in the next southern standstill on 22 January 2066 at 16:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
