Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 31 December 2030 at 13:36.
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 ∠10° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2031 after 3 days on 8 January 2031 at 18:26.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠5.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠21.6°.
12 days after point of perigee on 24 December 2030 at 10:09 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 6 January 2031 at 11:00 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 404 704 km (251 471 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 169 km (252 382 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 06:37 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 19 January 2031 at 08:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
12 days 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 day to face maximum declination of ∠21.889° at the point of next northern standstill on 6 January 2031 at 05:22 in ♊ Gemini.
In 3 days on 8 January 2031 at 18:26 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.
