Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1919" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2095 after 14 days on 20 January 2095 at 12:48.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 09:33 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1175 of Meeus index or 2128 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 55 minutes is the length of new lunation 1175. It is 1 hour and 45 minutes longer than next lunation 1176 length.
Length of current synodic month is 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠317.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠337.7°. 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°).
9 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 January 2095 at 02:21 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 373 499 km (232 082 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 985 km (226 791 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 5 January 2095 at 02:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 January 2095 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 01:32 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-24.121°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2095. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠24.116° in its northern standstill point on 19 January 2095 at 00:03 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
