Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 3 November 2074 at 19:21.
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 first ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2074 after 28 days on 3 December 2074 at 14:03.
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 925 of Meeus index or 1878 from Brown series.
Length of current 925 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 44 minutes. It is 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 926 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠335.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠352.3°. 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°).
14 days after point of perigee on 21 October 2074 at 21:56 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 November 2074 at 10:36 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 405 334 km (251 863 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 179 km (252 388 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 26 October 2074 at 15:21 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 November 2074 at 01:28 in ♋ Cancer.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 25 October 2074 at 10:55 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.522°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.659° in the next northern standstill on 8 November 2074 at 20:11 in ♋ Cancer.
After 13 days on 18 November 2074 at 20:56 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
