Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 19 December 2082 at 15:11.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1849" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2083 after 11 days on 4 January 2083 at 02:32.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1026 of Meeus index or 1979 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 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 5 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 4 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠31°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠55.2°.
5 days after point of perigee on 17 December 2082 at 18:03 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 29 December 2082 at 13:39 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 387 609 km (240 849 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 040 km (251 680 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 05:41 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 6 January 2083 at 17:32 in ♌ Leo.
At 05:41 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
4 days since the previous standstill on 19 December 2082 at 08:21 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.412°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.424° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 January 2083 at 11:49 in ♊ Gemini.
In 11 days on 4 January 2083 at 02:32 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
