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 ∠6° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1951".
The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 2034.
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 432 of Meeus index or 1385 from Brown series.
Length of current 432 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 minutes longer than next lunation 433 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠192.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠220.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
1 day after point of perigee on 24 December 2034 at 10:34 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 January 2035 at 18:52 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 365 620 km (227 186 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 976 km (252 262 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 18 December 2034 at 02:21 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 December 2034 at 13:10 in ♍ Virgo.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 08:20 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.552°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2034. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.547° in its southern standstill point on 8 January 2035 at 08:12 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
