Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 11 December 2061 at 22:32.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2061 after 13 days on 26 December 2061 at 16:53.
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 766 of Meeus index or 1719 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 20 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2061. It is 1 hour and 2 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 6 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 27 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠176.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠201.9°.
1 day after point of apogee on 12 December 2061 at 07:27 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 25 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 8 January 2062 at 09:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 404 753 km (251 502 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 25 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 473 km (252 571 mi).
7 days after descending node on 5 December 2061 at 23:41 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 20 December 2061 at 15:02 in ♈ Aries.
20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 12 December 2061 at 21:05 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.385°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.396° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 December 2061 at 10:29 in ♋ Cancer.
In 13 days on 26 December 2061 at 16:53 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
