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 first ∠2° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1950".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2090.
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 1113 of Meeus index or 2066 from Brown series.
Length of current 1113 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 37 minutes. It is 35 minutes shorter than next lunation 1114 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 53 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠135.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠163.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
11 days after point of apogee on 4 January 2090 at 23:25 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 January 2090 at 04:55 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 365 132 km (226 883 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 708 km (222 891 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 7 January 2090 at 17:09 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 January 2090 at 12:25 in ♎ Libra.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 14 January 2090 at 07:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.390°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.339° in the next southern standstill on 27 January 2090 at 04:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
