Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 9 December 2083 at 06:25.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2083 after 13 days on 24 December 2083 at 03:52.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1038 of Meeus index or 1991 from Brown series.
Length of current 1038 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 52 minutes. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1039 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠359.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠15°. 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 9 December 2083 at 07:26 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 December 2083 at 20:30 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 364 102 km (226 242 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 372 km (252 508 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 29 November 2083 at 06:19 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 December 2083 at 02:09 in ♑ Capricorn.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 9 December 2083 at 13:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.302°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.297° in the next northern standstill on 23 December 2083 at 04:56 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 24 December 2083 at 03:52 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
