Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 23 December 2064 at 18:14.
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 about ∠5° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1933" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2065 after 24 days on 22 January 2065 at 09:53.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
10 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 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 January 2065 at 20:34 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 370 905 km (230 470 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 142 km (228 753 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 26 December 2064 at 08:47 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 January 2065 at 05:38 in ♒ Aquarius.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 22 December 2064 at 22:07 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.786°. Next 7 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.
After 9 days on 6 January 2065 at 19:15 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
