Moon* ♑ Capricorn
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1869" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2082 after 16 days on 14 January 2082 at 18:11.
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 14:36 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1013 of Meeus index or 1966 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 52 minutes is the length of new lunation 1013. It is 2 hours and 26 minutes shorter than next lunation 1014 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠52.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠84.8°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 22 December 2081 at 10:49 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 January 2082 at 22:19 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 383 416 km (238 244 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 473 km (251 328 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 21 December 2081 at 12:04 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 January 2082 at 19:51 in ♓ Pisces.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 05:56 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-28.138°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2081. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠28.182° in its northern standstill point on 12 January 2082 at 16:51 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
