Gibbous ♍ Virgo
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 ∠19° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1948".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2032.
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 396 of Meeus index or 1349 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 18 minutes. It is 18 minutes longer 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 2 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 43 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠351.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠6.9°.
1 day after point of apogee on 27 January 2032 at 16:13 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 10 February 2032 at 20:46 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 405 170 km (251 761 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 948 km (221 797 mi).
7 days after descending node on 20 January 2032 at 20:00 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 4 February 2032 at 11:35 in ♏ Scorpio.
20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 23 January 2032 at 14:33 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.240°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.110° at the point of next southern standstill on 7 February 2032 at 03:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
