Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 15 December 2039 at 16:32.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2039 after 14 days on 30 December 2039 at 12:37.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 494 of Meeus index or 1447 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 53 minutes. It is 6 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 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 18 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠356.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠12.4°.
1 day after point of perigee on 15 December 2039 at 20:51 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 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 29 December 2039 at 16:34 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 363 423 km (225 821 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 13 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 355 km (252 497 mi).
1 day after descending node on 14 December 2039 at 23:54 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 28 December 2039 at 08:24 in ♊ Gemini.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 19:27 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-25.464°. 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 ∠25.448° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 30 December 2039 at 16:29.
In 14 days on 30 December 2039 at 12:37 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.
