Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2031 after 15 days on 8 January 2031 at 18:26.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 17:32 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 383 of Meeus index or 1336 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 59 minutes. It is 19 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 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 24 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠5.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠21.6°.
Moon is at perigee at 10:09. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 10 December 2030 at 10:03 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 6 January 2031 at 11:00 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 356 926 km (221 784 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2030. It is 5 582 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 501 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 23 December 2030 at 00:54 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 5 January 2031 at 06:37 in ♊ Gemini.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 23 December 2030 at 18:07 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.904°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.889° at the point of next northern standstill on 6 January 2031 at 05:22 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
