Gibbous ♌ Leo
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1853" and ∠1951".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2074.
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 915 of Meeus index or 1868 from Brown series.
Length of current 915 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than next lunation 916 length.
Length of current synodic month is 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠43.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠72.6°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 6 January 2074 at 17:28 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 January 2074 at 13:42 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 386 842 km (240 372 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 983 km (229 897 mi).
13 days after its descending node on 31 December 2073 at 05:26 in ♒ Aquarius, 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 14 January 2074 at 16:24 in ♌ Leo.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 12 January 2074 at 06:32 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.258°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.239° in the next southern standstill on 25 January 2074 at 06:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
