Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1897" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2078 after 2 days on 28 January 2078 at 01:33.
The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 965 of Meeus index or 1918 from Brown series.
Length of current 965 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 45 minutes. 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 18 January 2078 at 18:32 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 February 2078 at 05:07 in ♎ Libra.

2 days after its ascending node on 22 January 2078 at 17:10 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 February 2078 at 19:13 in ♏ Scorpio.

Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-26.587° in its southern standstill point on 9 February 2078 at 06:26 in ♑ Capricorn.
