Gibbous ♌ Leo
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1850" and ∠1950".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2087.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
6 days 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 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 January 2087 at 01:01 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 387 384 km (240 709 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 340 km (251 245 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 14 January 2087 at 20:43 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 January 2087 at 21:55 in ♏ Scorpio.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 15 January 2087 at 23:21 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.560°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.469° in the next southern standstill on 30 January 2087 at 06:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
