Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days 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 first ∠0° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 12 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51.
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 2 days 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 19 December 2093 at 18:42 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 January 2094 at 09:27 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 363 475 km (225 853 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 096 km (252 336 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 19 December 2093 at 15:25 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 January 2094 at 02:47 in ♋ Cancer.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 19 December 2093 at 08:08 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.474°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.474° in the next northern standstill on 1 January 2094 at 17:59 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 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.
