Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1891" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2078 after 13 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 01:14 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 965 of Meeus index or 1918 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 45 minutes is the length of new lunation 965. It is 2 hours and 6 minutes longer than next lunation 966 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 7 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠294.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠321.6°. 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°).
8 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 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 January 2078 at 18:32 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 379 057 km (235 535 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 308 km (229 477 mi).
4 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 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 January 2078 at 17:10 in ♉ Taurus.
18 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 11 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.
