Moon* ♋ 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 ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1951".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2071.
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 878 of Meeus index or 1831 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2071. It is 1 hour and 44 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 6 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 47 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠187.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠214.7°.
Moon is at perigee at 08:40. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 31 December 2070 at 14:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 27 January 2071 at 21:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 357 535 km (222 162 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 973 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 821 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
6 days after descending node on 8 January 2071 at 19:49 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 21 January 2071 at 06:04 in ♎ Libra.
21 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 14 January 2071 at 05:41 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.487°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.432° at the point of next southern standstill on 27 January 2071 at 15:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
