Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days 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 first ∠1° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1780" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2054 after 11 days on 23 January 2054 at 20:08.
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 3 days 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 10 January 2054 at 05:56 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 January 2054 at 19:38 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 402 725 km (250 242 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 512 km (221 526 mi).
13 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 January 2054 at 02:36 in ♓ Pisces.

4 days after previous South standstill on 7 January 2054 at 19:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.772°. Next 9 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 11 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.
