Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 11 January 2087 at 22:31.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1956" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2087 after 4 days on 18 January 2087 at 22:11.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1076 of Meeus index or 2029 from Brown series.
Length of current 1076 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 1 minute. It is 2 hours and 25 minutes longer than next lunation 1077 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 15 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠275.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠308.1°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 12 January 2087 at 13:20 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 January 2087 at 01:01 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 366 459 km (227 707 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 340 km (251 245 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 20:43 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 28 January 2087 at 21:55 in ♏ Scorpio.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 2 January 2087 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.607°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.560° in the next northern standstill on 15 January 2087 at 23:21 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 18 January 2087 at 22:11 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
