Moon* ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 7 days on 24 December 2070 at 09:31.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2071 after 15 days on 16 January 2071 at 02:35.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 877 of Meeus index or 1830 from Brown series.
Length of current 877 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 22 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2070. It is 22 minutes longer than next lunation 878 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 38 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 25 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠163.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠187.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 14:10, this is 5 days after last perigee on 26 December 2070 at 07:40 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 15 January 2071 at 08:40 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 406 681 km (252 700 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2070. It is 1 273 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 28 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
6 days after its ascending node on 25 December 2070 at 04:13 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 January 2071 at 19:49 in ♈ Aries.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 07:48 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.553°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.487° in its northern standstill point on 14 January 2071 at 05:41 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 1 January 2071 at 12:15 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
