Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 10 January 2081 at 01:02.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2081 after 12 days on 25 January 2081 at 04:01.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1002 of Meeus index or 1955 from Brown series.
Length of current 1002 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 15 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2081. It is 15 minutes longer than next lunation 1003 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 31 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 32 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠151.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠177.5°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 23:29, this is 15 days after last perigee on 28 December 2080 at 06:47 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 25 January 2081 at 17:17 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 406 193 km (252 397 mi) away from Earth. It is 785 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 516 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
11 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 January 2081 at 13:46 in ♓ Pisces.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 8 January 2081 at 08:04 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.426°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.501° in the next northern standstill on 22 January 2081 at 17:53 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 days on 25 January 2081 at 04:01 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
