Moon* ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 12 December 2082 at 23:51.
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 about ∠11° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1957" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2083 after 16 days on 4 January 2083 at 02:32.
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 1025 of Meeus index or 1978 from Brown series.
Length of current 1025 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 51 minutes. It is 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than next lunation 1026 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 53 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 16 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠13.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠31°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 17 December 2082 at 18:03 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 December 2082 at 13:39 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 366 270 km (227 590 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 040 km (251 680 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 10 December 2082 at 14:39 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 December 2082 at 05:41 in ♒ Aquarius.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 6 December 2082 at 05:19 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.402°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.412° in the next southern standstill on 19 December 2082 at 08:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 19 December 2082 at 15:11 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
