Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 78% and growing larger. The 10 days young Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 2 January 2096 at 23:02.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2096 after 4 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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1187 of Meeus index or 2140 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes. It is 2 hours and 36 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 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠255°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠291.7°.
Moon is at perigee at 18:18. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 20 December 2095 at 23:26 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 17 January 2096 at 20:30 in ♎ Libra.
This perigee Moon is 368 290 km (228 845 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 782 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 066 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after descending node on 24 December 2095 at 17:49 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 6 January 2096 at 23:04 in ♊ Gemini.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 27 December 2095 at 03:42 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.640°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.638° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 January 2096 at 02:58 in ♋ Cancer.
In 4 days on 9 January 2096 at 19:20 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
