Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2044 after 14 days on 14 January 2044 at 18:51.
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 09:48 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 544 of Meeus index or 1497 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 16 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 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 5 hours and 32 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 31 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠204.4°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠235.6°.
2 days after point of apogee on 28 December 2043 at 19:33 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 13 January 2044 at 09:08 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 402 995 km (250 409 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 906 km (223 635 mi).
8 days after descending node on 22 December 2043 at 16:01 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 6 January 2044 at 06:50 in ♓ Pisces.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 30 December 2043 at 12:51 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.400°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.453° at the point of next northern standstill on 13 January 2044 at 02:29 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
