Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1951".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2094.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle 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 2094. 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°).
13 days 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 January 2094 at 09:27 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 404 460 km (251 320 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 096 km (252 336 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 02:47 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 16 January 2094 at 02:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 02:47 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
1 day after previous North standstill on 1 January 2094 at 17:59 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.474°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.474° in the next southern standstill on 15 January 2094 at 19:36 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
