Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 18 November 2070 at 05:40.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2070 after 28 days on 17 December 2070 at 16:05.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 876 of Meeus index or 1829 from Brown series.
Length of current 876 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 877 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 27 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠134.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠163.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:55, this is 12 days after last apogee on 7 November 2070 at 02:03 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 4 December 2070 at 13:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 358 729 km (222 904 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 779 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 627 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 15 November 2070 at 11:41 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 November 2070 at 03:19 in ♎ Libra.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 6 November 2070 at 16:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.443°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.488° in the next northern standstill on 20 November 2070 at 04:59 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 2 December 2070 at 16:53 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
