Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1948" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2059 after 15 days on 28 January 2059 at 15:11.
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 16:12 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 729 of Meeus index or 1682 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 45 minutes is the length of new lunation 729. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes longer than next lunation 730 length.
Length of current synodic month is 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠321.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠341.1°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 3 January 2059 at 02:24 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 January 2059 at 06:49 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 367 996 km (228 662 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 945 km (223 038 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 10 January 2059 at 18:48 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 January 2059 at 08:38 in ♊ Gemini.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 04:35 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-25.989°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2059. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.006° in its northern standstill point on 26 January 2059 at 04:36 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
