Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 27 December 2086 at 21:58.
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 first ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2087 after 17 days on 18 January 2087 at 22:11.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1075 of Meeus index or 2028 from Brown series.
Length of current 1075 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 23 minutes. It is 2 hours and 23 minutes longer than next lunation 1076 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 39 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 24 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠238°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠275.9°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 29 December 2086 at 03:31 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 January 2087 at 13:20 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 400 533 km (248 880 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 271 km (230 076 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 17:04 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 14 January 2087 at 20:43 in ♉ Taurus.
At 17:04 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
12 days after previous North standstill on 19 December 2086 at 14:19 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.627°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.607° in the next southern standstill on 2 January 2087 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 3 days on 4 January 2087 at 22:11 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
