Moon* ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 8 January 2044 at 04:02.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2044 after 1 day on 14 January 2044 at 18:51.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠204.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠235.6°.
Moon is at perigee at 09:08. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 28 December 2043 at 19:33 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 25 January 2044 at 09:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 359 906 km (223 635 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 602 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 450 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after ascending node on 6 January 2044 at 06:50 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 18 January 2044 at 19:49 in ♍ Virgo.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 02:29 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠28.453°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-28.503° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 26 January 2044 at 18:54.
In 1 day on 14 January 2044 at 18:51 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.
