Gibbous ♌ Leo
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1950".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2049.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 606 of Meeus index or 1559 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 51 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2049. It is 5 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 53 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 16 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠3.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠20°.
2 days after point of apogee on 17 January 2049 at 00:48 in ♋ Cancer. 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 1 February 2049 at 08:51 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 403 377 km (250 647 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 256 km (223 231 mi).
3 days after descending node on 15 January 2049 at 14:48 in ♊ Gemini. 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 29 January 2049 at 17:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 15 January 2049 at 14:32 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.889°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.806° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 January 2049 at 19:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
