Moon* ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 5 January 2017 at 19:47.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1947" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2017 after 1 day on 12 January 2017 at 11:34.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 210 of Meeus index or 1163 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 14 minutes. It is 2 hours and 23 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 4 hours and 30 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 33 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠223.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠259.5°.
1 day after point of perigee on 10 January 2017 at 06:07 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 22 January 2017 at 00:14 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 368 172 km (228 771 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 913 km (251 601 mi).
8 days after descending node on 2 January 2017 at 18:14 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 15 January 2017 at 10:45 in ♍ Virgo.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 09:32 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠18.932°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-18.900° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 25 January 2017 at 11:59.
In 1 day on 12 January 2017 at 11:34 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
