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 ∠13° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1951".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2075.
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 927 of Meeus index or 1880 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 17 minutes. It is 47 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 1 hour and 27 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 42 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠7.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠24.6°.
2 days after point of apogee on 30 December 2074 at 16:12 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 15 January 2075 at 07:21 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 402 821 km (250 301 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 371 km (223 924 mi).
13 days after descending node on 20 December 2074 at 02:32 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 3 January 2075 at 08:42 in ♋ Cancer.
26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 09:48 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠21.829°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-21.820° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 15 January 2075 at 19:15.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
