Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2066 after 15 days on 11 January 2066 at 15:07.
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 08:27 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 816 of Meeus index or 1769 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 47 minutes. It is 49 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 57 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 12 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠16.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠35.6°.
16 days after point of apogee on 11 December 2065 at 06:28 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 7 January 2066 at 15:46 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 365 799 km (227 297 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 716 km (252 100 mi).
12 days after descending node on 15 December 2065 at 01:34 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 28 December 2065 at 03:31 in ♑ Capricorn.
26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 26 December 2065 at 06:50 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.485°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.491° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 January 2066 at 23:20 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
