Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1822" and ∠1951".
The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 2064.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 803 of Meeus index or 1756 from Brown series.
Length of current 803 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 46 minutes. It is 2 hours and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 804 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 7 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠33°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠57.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
5 days after point of apogee on 18 December 2064 at 01:06 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 January 2065 at 20:34 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 393 433 km (244 468 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 142 km (228 753 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 11 December 2064 at 21:17 in ♒ Aquarius, 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 26 December 2064 at 08:47 in ♌ Leo.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 22 December 2064 at 22:07 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.786°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.815° in the next southern standstill on 5 January 2065 at 00:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
