Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 11 December 2095 at 06:21.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1906" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2096 after 28 days on 9 January 2096 at 19:20.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
3 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 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 December 2095 at 23:26 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 376 029 km (233 654 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 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 12 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.
At 17:11 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠25.653°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2095. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-25.640° in its southern standstill point on 27 December 2095 at 03:42 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 14 days on 26 December 2095 at 18:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
