Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1855" and ∠1951".
The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1174 of Meeus index or 2127 from Brown series.
Length of current 1174 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 48 minutes longer than next lunation 1175 length.
Length of current synodic month is 59 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 4 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠287.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠317.1°. 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 13 December 2094 at 11:23 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 December 2094 at 08:42 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 386 427 km (240 115 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 647 km (251 436 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♊ Gemini at 16:09 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 5 January 2095 at 02:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.
At 16:09 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
11 days after previous South standstill on 9 December 2094 at 16:27 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.130°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.122° in the next northern standstill on 22 December 2094 at 16:45 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
