Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2089 after 14 days on 26 January 2089 at 11:25.
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 20:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1101 of Meeus index or 2054 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 58 minutes is the length of new lunation 1101. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2089. It is 1 hour and 50 minutes longer than next lunation 1102 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠185.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠211.9°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 04:23, this is 13 days after last perigee on 28 December 2088 at 06:32 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 25 January 2089 at 19:36 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 406 703 km (252 714 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2089. It is 1 295 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 6 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
6 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 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 January 2089 at 04:30 in ♈ Aries.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 9 January 2089 at 11:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.913°. Next 12 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
