Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2075 after 14 days on 2 January 2075 at 09:39.
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 07:20 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 927 of Meeus index or 1880 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 17 minutes is the length of new lunation 927. It is 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 928 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠24.6°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 17 December 2074 at 20:35 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 December 2074 at 16:12 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 364 021 km (226 192 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 129 km (252 357 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 7 December 2074 at 03:38 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 20 December 2074 at 02:32 in ♑ Capricorn.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 6 December 2074 at 03:05 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.807°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.818° in the next southern standstill on 19 December 2074 at 07:43 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
