Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 19 December 2044 at 08:53.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2045 after 12 days on 3 January 2045 at 10:20.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 556 of Meeus index or 1509 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 32 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2044. It is 6 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 6 hours and 48 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 15 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠156.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠182.1°.
Moon is at apogee at 20:29. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 6 December 2044 at 08:05 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 3 January 2045 at 19:25 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 406 354 km (252 497 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2044. It is 946 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 355 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
10 days after descending node on 10 December 2044 at 12:32 in ♍ Virgo. 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 24 December 2044 at 21:19 in ♒ Aquarius.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 19 December 2044 at 04:38 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.031°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.069° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 January 2045 at 06:32 in ♊ Gemini.
In 12 days on 3 January 2045 at 10:20 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.
