Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 29 December 2094 at 20:27.
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 ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1872" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2095 after 16 days on 20 January 2095 at 12:48.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 28 December 2094 at 08:42 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 January 2095 at 02:21 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 382 879 km (237 910 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 985 km (226 791 mi).
13 days after its ascending node on 21 December 2094 at 16:09 in ♊ Gemini, 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 5 January 2095 at 02:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the first to the middle part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 22 December 2094 at 16:45 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.122°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.121° in the next southern standstill on 6 January 2095 at 01:32 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day on 6 January 2095 at 09:33 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
