Gibbous ♌ Leo
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 100%. The 15 days old Moon is in ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 30 January 2029 at 06:03 UTC.
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 ∠14° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1933" and ∠1948".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2029.
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 359 of Meeus index or 1312 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 7 minutes. It is 41 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 23 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠99.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠136.2°.
9 days after point of apogee on 20 January 2029 at 18:08 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 February 2029 at 12:21 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 370 840 km (230 429 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 336 km (225 767 mi).
2 days after descending node on 28 January 2029 at 08:40 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 10 February 2029 at 03:07 in ♑ Capricorn.
16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 26 January 2029 at 12:31 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.172°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.127° at the point of next southern standstill on 8 February 2029 at 06:14 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
