Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1844" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2096 after 13 days on 9 January 2096 at 19:20.
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 18:24 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1187 of Meeus index or 2140 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes is the length of new lunation 1187. It is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than next lunation 1188 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠255°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠291.7°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 20 December 2095 at 23:26 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 5 January 2096 at 18:18 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 388 622 km (241 479 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 290 km (228 845 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 24 December 2095 at 17:49 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 January 2096 at 23:04 in ♊ Gemini.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 03:42 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-25.640°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠25.638° in its northern standstill point on 9 January 2096 at 02:58 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
