Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1947".
The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 2074.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 3 December 2074 at 13:40 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 December 2074 at 20:35 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 405 123 km (251 732 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 126 km (221 908 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 22 November 2074 at 18:20 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 December 2074 at 03:38 in ♋ Cancer.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 21 November 2074 at 20:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.732°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.807° in the next northern standstill on 6 December 2074 at 03:05 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
