Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2092 after 18 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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 12:22, this is 16 days after last apogee on 21 December 2091 at 10:59 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 18 January 2092 at 05:57 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 364 495 km (226 487 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 987 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 861 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days 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 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 January 2092 at 13:52 in ♒ Aquarius.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 26 December 2091 at 05:43 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.486°. Next day 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 2 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.
