Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1933" and ∠1951".
The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 2069.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 865 of Meeus index or 1818 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 45 minutes. It is 2 hours and 15 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 5 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 2 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠211.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠244.8°.
17 days after point of apogee on 10 December 2069 at 12:50 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 31 December 2069 at 15:07 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 370 777 km (230 390 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 370 337 km (230 117 mi).
4 days after descending node on 23 December 2069 at 17:14 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 5 January 2070 at 18:42 in ♎ Libra.
18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 27 December 2069 at 01:12 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.319°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.284° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 January 2070 at 01:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
