Gibbous ♋ 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 ∠13° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1951".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2075.
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 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 apogee on 30 December 2074 at 16:12 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 January 2075 at 07:21 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 402 821 km (250 301 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 371 km (223 924 mi).
13 days after its descending node on 20 December 2074 at 02:32 in ♑ Capricorn, 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 3 January 2075 at 08:42 in ♋ Cancer.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 09:48 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠21.829°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-21.820° in its southern standstill point on 15 January 2075 at 19:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
