Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1932" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2092 after 16 days on 24 January 2092 at 14:55.
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 13:54 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1137 of Meeus index or 2090 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes is the length of new lunation 1137. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 6 January 2092 at 12:22 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 January 2092 at 05:57 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 370 923 km (230 481 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 702 km (251 470 mi).
9 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 January 2092 at 13:52 in ♒ Aquarius.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 08:40 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-19.466°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠19.448° in its northern standstill point on 22 January 2092 at 14:14 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
