Moon* ♑ Capricorn
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1867" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2078 after 14 days on 28 January 2078 at 01:33.
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 10:06 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 964 of Meeus index or 1917 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 8 minutes is the length of new lunation 964. It is 2 hours and 23 minutes longer than next lunation 965 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠258.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠294.9°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 6 January 2078 at 08:03 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 January 2078 at 18:32 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 383 879 km (238 531 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 308 km (229 477 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 9 January 2078 at 15:53 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 January 2078 at 17:10 in ♉ Taurus.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 12 January 2078 at 21:22 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.463°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.499° in the next northern standstill on 25 January 2078 at 19:02 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
