Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1783" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2079 after 15 days on 8 December 2079 at 15:16.
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 11:29 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 988 of Meeus index or 1941 from Brown series.
29 days, 19 hours and 2 minutes is the length of new lunation 988. It is 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 989 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠148.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠174.6°. 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°).
12 days after point of perigee on 10 November 2079 at 21:38 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 November 2079 at 15:51 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 401 935 km (249 751 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 258 km (252 437 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 20 November 2079 at 06:11 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 December 2079 at 19:50 in ♈ Aries.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 12 November 2079 at 08:30 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.320°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.260° in the next southern standstill on 26 November 2079 at 04:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
