Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 22 January 2086 at 02:41.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1823" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2086 after 2 days on 29 January 2086 at 17:49.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1064 of Meeus index or 2017 from Brown series.
Length of current 1064 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 3 minutes. It is 1 hour and 26 minutes longer than next lunation 1065 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠329.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠347°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 17 January 2086 at 08:10 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 February 2086 at 04:51 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 393 257 km (244 359 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 946 km (252 243 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 25 January 2086 at 20:34 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 February 2086 at 10:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 25 January 2086 at 13:48 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.242°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.132° in the next southern standstill on 9 February 2086 at 06:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 29 January 2086 at 17:49 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
