Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 3 December 2074 at 14:03.
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 ∠4° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2075 after 27 days on 2 January 2075 at 09:39.
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 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 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 December 2074 at 20:35 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 403 826 km (250 926 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 126 km (221 908 mi).
12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 December 2074 at 03:38 in ♋ Cancer.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 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.
After 12 days on 18 December 2074 at 07:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
