Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 18 December 2074 at 07:20.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1943" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2075 after 12 days on 2 January 2075 at 09:39.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 927 of Meeus index or 1880 from Brown series.
Length of current 927 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 17 minutes. 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°).
2 days 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 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 December 2074 at 16:12 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 368 935 km (229 246 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 129 km (252 357 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 02:32 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 3 January 2075 at 08:42 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 19 December 2074 at 07:43 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.818°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.829° in the next northern standstill on 2 January 2075 at 09:48 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 2 January 2075 at 09:39 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
