Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 25 December 2091 at 21:59.
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 first ∠3° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1898" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2092 after 25 days on 24 January 2092 at 14:55.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1137 of Meeus index or 2090 from Brown series.
Length of current 1137 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 1138 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠20.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠40.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
9 days after point of apogee on 21 December 2091 at 10:59 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 January 2092 at 12:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 377 595 km (234 627 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 495 km (226 487 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 29 December 2091 at 20:00 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 January 2092 at 13:52 in ♒ Aquarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 26 December 2091 at 05:43 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.486°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.466° in the next southern standstill on 8 January 2092 at 08:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 9 days on 9 January 2092 at 01:37 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
