Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 26 December 2095 at 18:24.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1867" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2096 after 12 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1187 of Meeus index or 2140 from Brown series.
Length of current 1187 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes. 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°).
7 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 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 5 January 2096 at 18:18 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 383 891 km (238 539 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 290 km (228 845 mi).
3 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 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 January 2096 at 23:04 in ♊ Gemini.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 27 December 2095 at 03:42 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.640°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.638° in the next northern standstill on 9 January 2096 at 02:58 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 9 January 2096 at 19:20 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
