Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 17 January 2039 at 18:42.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1946" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2039 after 17 days on 9 February 2039 at 03:39.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
1 day after point of perigee on 21 January 2039 at 05:35 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 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 2 February 2039 at 01:38 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 368 365 km (228 891 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 385 km (251 273 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 05:13 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 5 February 2039 at 05:55 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
At 23:27 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-23.890°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2039. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠23.931° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 6 February 2039 at 03:54.
In 2 days on 24 January 2039 at 13:36 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
