Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 26 January 2087 at 20:01.
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 ∠21° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1811" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2087 after 18 days on 17 February 2087 at 13:34.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 26 January 2087 at 01:01 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 February 2087 at 21:41 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 395 686 km (245 868 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 027 km (228 060 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 28 January 2087 at 21:55 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 February 2087 at 21:48 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 06:45 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-21.469°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠21.361° in its northern standstill point on 12 February 2087 at 05:55 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 3 February 2087 at 12:10 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
