Quarter ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days 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 ∠1° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1807" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2074 after 23 days on 3 December 2074 at 14:03.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 20 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 6 November 2074 at 10:36 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2074 at 07:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 396 684 km (246 488 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 121 km (221 905 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 01:28 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 22 November 2074 at 18:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 01:28 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
1 day after previous North standstill on 8 November 2074 at 20:11 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.659°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.732° in the next southern standstill on 21 November 2074 at 20:06 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 8 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.
