Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 27 days on 31 January 2094 at 12:36.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 09:27, this is 15 days after last perigee on 19 December 2093 at 18:42 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 17 January 2094 at 05:33 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 406 096 km (252 336 mi) away from Earth. It is 688 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 613 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
2 days after its ascending node on 2 January 2094 at 02:47 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 January 2094 at 02:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 1 January 2094 at 17:59 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.474°. Next 11 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.
After 12 days on 16 January 2094 at 19:05 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
