Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

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.

Lunation 1236 / 2189

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1236 of Meeus index or 2189 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.57 days

Length of current 1236 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than next lunation 1237 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠49.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠49.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠81.3°. 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°).

Moon before perigee

12 days after point of apogee on 20 December 2099 at 13:16 in ♈ Aries. 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 3 January 2100 at 08:57 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 363 879 km

Moon is 363 879 km (226 104 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 356 km (230 129 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 1 January 2100 at 21:13 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 January 2100 at 03:56 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 26 December 2099 at 23:34 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.345°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.379° in the next southern standstill on 8 January 2100 at 21:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 10 January 2100 at 12:55 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
