Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1941" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2050 after 14 days on 8 January 2050 at 01:39.
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 17:51 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 618 of Meeus index or 1571 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 5 minutes. It is 58 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 1 hour and 39 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 30 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠332.9°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠350.1°.
10 days after point of apogee on 14 December 2049 at 11:17 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 26 December 2049 at 08:57 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 369 382 km (229 523 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 939 km (224 277 mi).
2 days after ascending node on 22 December 2049 at 10:13 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 4 January 2050 at 03:20 in ♉ Taurus.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 23 December 2049 at 17:33 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.275°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.260° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 January 2050 at 16:08 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
