Gibbous ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 2 December 2068 at 05:21.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2068 after 5 days on 8 December 2068 at 23:42.
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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 852 of Meeus index or 1805 from Brown series.
Length of current 852 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 2 minutes. It is 2 hours and 10 minutes longer than next lunation 853 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠241.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠279.4°. 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°).
13 days after point of apogee on 19 November 2068 at 19:10 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 5 December 2068 at 19:40 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 363 498 km (225 867 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 315 km (227 618 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 24 November 2068 at 01:37 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 December 2068 at 05:58 in ♉ Taurus.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 26 November 2068 at 02:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.658°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.669° in the next northern standstill on 9 December 2068 at 01:53 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 days on 8 December 2068 at 23:42 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
