Gibbous ♋ Cancer
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 ∠12° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1864" and ∠1951".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2007.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 86 of Meeus index or 1039 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 16 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 47 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠276.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠308.6°.
6 days after point of perigee on 28 December 2006 at 01:48 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 10 January 2007 at 16:26 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 384 458 km (238 891 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 335 km (251 242 mi).
8 days after ascending node on 26 December 2006 at 10:36 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 January 2007 at 17:44 in ♍ Virgo.
8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 2 January 2007 at 11:57 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.396°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.448° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 January 2007 at 22:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
