Gibbous ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 26 December 2061 at 16:53.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1953" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2062 after 27 days on 25 January 2062 at 03:37.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
16 days 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 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 8 January 2062 at 09:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 366 981 km (228 031 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 473 km (252 571 mi).
7 days after ascending node on 20 December 2061 at 15:02 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 2 January 2062 at 00:30 in ♎ Libra.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 26 December 2061 at 10:29 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.396°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.405° at the point of next southern standstill on 9 January 2062 at 02:13 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 13 days on 10 January 2062 at 17:52 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
