Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 9 January 2094 at 21:36.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1958" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 16 days on 31 January 2094 at 12:36.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 4 January 2094 at 09:27 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 January 2094 at 05:33 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 366 167 km (227 526 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 139 km (221 916 mi).
13 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 January 2094 at 02:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 19:36 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 2094. 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 28 January 2094 at 23:58 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day 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.
