Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2084 after 15 days on 22 January 2084 at 23:15.
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 17:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1039 of Meeus index or 1992 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 36 minutes is the length of new lunation 1039. It is 35 minutes shorter than next lunation 1040 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠15°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠33.6°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 6 January 2084 at 20:08 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 January 2084 at 04:48 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 364 658 km (226 588 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 803 km (252 154 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 26 December 2083 at 09:52 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 January 2084 at 12:22 in ♑ Capricorn.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 6 January 2084 at 00:01 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.325°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.337° in the next northern standstill on 19 January 2084 at 11:14 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
