Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 8 January 2054 at 22:34.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♒ Aquarius 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 2054 after 13 days on 23 January 2054 at 20:08.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 668 of Meeus index or 1621 from Brown series.
Length of current 668 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 40 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2054. It is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than next lunation 669 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 56 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 7 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠168.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠193.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 05:56, this is 14 days after last perigee on 26 December 2053 at 06:40 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 23 January 2054 at 19:38 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 406 537 km (252 610 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2054. It is 1 129 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 172 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
11 days after its ascending node on 29 December 2053 at 18:29 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 January 2054 at 02:36 in ♓ Pisces.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 7 January 2054 at 19:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.772°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.720° in the next northern standstill on 21 January 2054 at 23:45 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 23 January 2054 at 20:08 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
