Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1928" and ∠1949".
The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 2095.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1186 of Meeus index or 2139 from Brown series.
Length of current 1186 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 30 minutes. It is 2 hours and 10 minutes longer than next lunation 1187 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 46 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 17 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠219.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠255°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 9 December 2095 at 04:46 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 December 2095 at 23:26 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 371 697 km (230 962 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 919 km (251 605 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 10 December 2095 at 14:42 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 December 2095 at 17:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 29 November 2095 at 21:18 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.668°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.653° in the next northern standstill on 12 December 2095 at 17:11 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
