Gibbous ♌ Leo
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1951".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2085.
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 1051 of Meeus index or 2004 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2085. It is 34 minutes longer 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 44 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 25 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠345.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠0.9°.
14 days after point of perigee on 28 December 2084 at 05:57 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 12 January 2085 at 05:03 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 405 401 km (251 905 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 331 km (252 482 mi).
1 day after descending node on 10 January 2085 at 01:55 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 January 2085 at 03:41 in ♑ Capricorn.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 8 January 2085 at 06:01 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.917°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.889° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 January 2085 at 16:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
