Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 18 December 2095 at 15:14.
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 ∠7° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2096 after 16 days on 9 January 2096 at 19:20.
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 1186 of Meeus index or 2139 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 30 minutes. It is 2 hours and 10 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 46 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 17 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠219.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠255°.
3 days after point of apogee on 20 December 2095 at 23:26 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 5 January 2096 at 18:18 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 400 464 km (248 837 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 290 km (228 845 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 17:49 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 6 January 2096 at 23:04 in ♊ Gemini.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 12 December 2095 at 17:11 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.653°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.640° at the point of next southern standstill on 27 December 2095 at 03:42 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 2 days on 26 December 2095 at 18:24 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
