Moon ♑ Capricorn
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1886" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2085 after 14 days on 30 December 2085 at 23:59.
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 22:38 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1063 of Meeus index or 2016 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 46 minutes. It is 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 7 hours and 1 minute shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠305°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠329.2°.
7 days after point of apogee on 8 December 2085 at 15:54 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 20 December 2085 at 14:38 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 380 059 km (236 158 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 571 km (228 398 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 17:31 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 29 December 2085 at 15:40 in ♊ Gemini.
At 17:31 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
At 09:38 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-23.307°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2085. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠23.313° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 29 December 2085 at 07:22.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
