Moon* ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days 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 0.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1938" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2068 after 1 day 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 13 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 5 December 2068 at 19:40 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 December 2068 at 15:04 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 369 841 km (229 809 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 457 km (251 318 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 05:58 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 21 December 2068 at 08:54 in ♏ Scorpio.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 26 November 2068 at 02:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.658°. Next day 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 1 day 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.
