Gibbous ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 10 January 2085 at 22:42.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2085 after 28 days on 9 February 2085 at 18:24.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
Moon is at apogee at 05:03. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 28 December 2084 at 05:57 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 25 January 2085 at 18:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 406 331 km (252 482 mi) away from Earth. It is 923 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 378 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
2 days after descending node on 10 January 2085 at 01:55 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 January 2085 at 03:41 in ♑ Capricorn.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
4 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 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.889° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 January 2085 at 16:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 13 days on 25 January 2085 at 20:06 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
