Moon* ♌ Leo
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 ∠22° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1889" and ∠1950".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2038.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 470 of Meeus index or 1423 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 12 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 3 hours and 27 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 36 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠79.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠117.1°.
7 days after point of apogee on 12 January 2038 at 13:57 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 24 January 2038 at 09:52 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 379 528 km (235 828 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 508 km (227 738 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 08:06 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 2 February 2038 at 05:08 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 08:06 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
1 day since the previous standstill on 19 January 2038 at 19:02 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.188°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.196° at the point of next southern standstill on 1 February 2038 at 15:22 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
