Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 18 December 2093 at 07:47.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 13 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1162 of Meeus index or 2115 from Brown series.
Length of current 1162 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 18 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2093. It is 40 minutes longer than next lunation 1163 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 26 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 43 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠335.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠352.5°. 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 perigee on this date at 18:42, this is 11 days after last apogee on 7 December 2093 at 19:07 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 4 January 2094 at 09:27 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 360 323 km (223 894 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 185 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 033 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 15:25 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 2 January 2094 at 02:47 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 08:08 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-22.474°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2093. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.474° in its northern standstill point on 1 January 2094 at 17:59 in ♋ Cancer.
After 13 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
