Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2040 after 14 days on 29 January 2040 at 07:54.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 03:25 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 495 of Meeus index or 1448 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 59 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2040. It is 23 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 45 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 24 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠12.4°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠30.1°.
1 day after point of perigee on 13 January 2040 at 10:03 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 25 January 2040 at 22:42 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 365 276 km (226 972 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 896 km (252 212 mi).
3 days after descending node on 11 January 2040 at 10:06 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 January 2040 at 12:28 in ♊ Gemini.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 13 January 2040 at 06:43 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.460°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.480° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 January 2040 at 22:14 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
