Moon ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 2 January 2081 at 08:32.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1802" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2081 after 16 days on 25 January 2081 at 04:01.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1001 of Meeus index or 1954 from Brown series.
Length of current 1001 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes shorter than next lunation 1002 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠119.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠151.7°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 28 December 2080 at 06:47 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 January 2081 at 23:29 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 397 867 km (247 223 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 193 km (252 397 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 1 January 2081 at 06:33 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 January 2081 at 13:46 in ♓ Pisces.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 08:04 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-28.426°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠28.501° in its northern standstill point on 22 January 2081 at 17:53 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 10 January 2081 at 01:02 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
