Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2074 after 14 days on 3 December 2074 at 14:03.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 20:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 926 of Meeus index or 1879 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 24 minutes is the length of new lunation 926. It is 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 927 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠352.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠7.7°. 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 07:37, this is 12 days after last apogee on 6 November 2074 at 10:36 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 3 December 2074 at 13:40 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 357 121 km (221 905 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 387 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 235 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after its ascending node on 10 November 2074 at 01:28 in ♋ Cancer, 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 22 November 2074 at 18:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 8 November 2074 at 20:11 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.659°. Next 2 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
