Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2067 after 14 days on 30 January 2067 at 10:29.
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 11:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 829 of Meeus index or 1782 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 40 minutes is the length of new lunation 829. It is 9 minutes longer than next lunation 830 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠2.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠18.4°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:56, this is 13 days after last apogee on 1 January 2067 at 14:49 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 28 January 2067 at 14:45 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 356 756 km (221 678 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2067. It is 5 752 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 331 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 13 January 2067 at 18:46 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 January 2067 at 22:59 in ♊ Gemini.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 13 January 2067 at 00:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.918°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.887° in the next northern standstill on 26 January 2067 at 00:50 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
