Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 2 January 2039 at 07:37.
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 ∠13° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2039 after 2 days on 10 January 2039 at 11:45.
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 482 of Meeus index or 1435 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 34 minutes. It is 1 hour and 7 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 10 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 59 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠28.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠51.2°.
2 days after point of apogee on 5 January 2039 at 05:10 in ♉ Taurus. 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 21 January 2039 at 05:35 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 403 688 km (250 840 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 856 km (227 954 mi).
12 days after descending node on 25 December 2038 at 19:56 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 January 2039 at 23:18 in ♊ Gemini.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 26 December 2038 at 13:42 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.882°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.878° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 January 2039 at 20:11 in ♋ Cancer.
In 2 days on 10 January 2039 at 11:45 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.
