Moon* ♋ Cancer
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 about ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1951".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2071.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 878 of Meeus index or 1831 from Brown series.
Length of current 878 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2071. It is 1 hour and 44 minutes longer than next lunation 879 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠187.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠214.7°. 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 perigee on this date at 08:40, this is 14 days after last apogee on 31 December 2070 at 14:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 27 January 2071 at 21:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 357 535 km (222 162 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 973 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 821 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
6 days after its descending node on 8 January 2071 at 19:49 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 January 2071 at 06:04 in ♎ Libra.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 14 January 2071 at 05:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.487°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.432° in the next southern standstill on 27 January 2071 at 15:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
