Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 23 December 2041 at 08:06.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2042 after 8 days on 6 January 2042 at 08:54.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 519 of Meeus index or 1472 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 36 minutes. It is 1 hour and 39 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 8 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 1 minute longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠300.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠326°.
1 day after point of perigee on 27 December 2041 at 09:54 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 12 January 2042 at 04:04 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 363 443 km (225 833 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 14 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 808 km (251 536 mi).
9 days after descending node on 18 December 2041 at 23:35 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 31 December 2041 at 22:59 in ♈ Aries.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 23 December 2041 at 14:23 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.725°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.722° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 January 2042 at 12:44 in ♋ Cancer.
In 8 days on 6 January 2042 at 08:54 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.
