Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 18 November 2074 at 20:56.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2074 after 12 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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 926 of Meeus index or 1879 from Brown series.
Length of current 926 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 24 minutes. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 19 November 2074 at 07:37 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 December 2074 at 13:40 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 365 135 km (226 884 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 442 km (252 551 mi).
11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 November 2074 at 18:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 20:06 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-21.732°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠21.807° in its northern standstill point on 6 December 2074 at 03:05 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 3 December 2074 at 14:03 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
