Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 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 about ∠14° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1805" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2087 after 16 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 27 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°).
4 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 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 January 2087 at 13:20 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 397 156 km (246 781 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 271 km (230 076 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 1 January 2087 at 17:04 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 January 2087 at 20:43 in ♉ Taurus.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 20:57 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-21.607°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2087. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠21.560° in its northern standstill point on 15 January 2087 at 23:21 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 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.
