Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 30 December 2085 at 23:59.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♍ Virgo 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 2086 after 24 days on 29 January 2086 at 17:49.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1063 of Meeus index or 2016 from Brown series.
Length of current 1063 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 46 minutes. It is 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than next lunation 1064 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 7 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠305°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠329.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 12:32, this is 15 days after last perigee on 20 December 2085 at 14:38 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 17 January 2086 at 08:10 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 405 066 km (251 696 mi) away from Earth. It is 342 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 643 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
6 days after its descending node on 29 December 2085 at 15:40 in ♊ Gemini, 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 13 January 2086 at 03:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous North standstill on 29 December 2085 at 07:22 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.313°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.281° in the next southern standstill on 12 January 2086 at 20:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 9 days on 15 January 2086 at 11:24 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
