Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 3 January 2089 at 18:00.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2089 after 15 days on 26 January 2089 at 11:25.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1100 of Meeus index or 2053 from Brown series.
Length of current 1100 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 26 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2089. It is 28 minutes longer than next lunation 1101 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠160.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠185.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
13 days after point of perigee on 28 December 2088 at 06:32 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 January 2089 at 04:23 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 405 203 km (251 781 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 703 km (252 714 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 4 January 2089 at 12:45 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 January 2089 at 04:30 in ♈ Aries.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 9 January 2089 at 11:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.913°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.817° in the next northern standstill on 23 January 2089 at 16:28 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 11 January 2089 at 20:17 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
