Moon* ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 23 November 2081 at 19:49.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1926" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2081 after 16 days on 16 December 2081 at 04:31.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1012 of Meeus index or 1965 from Brown series.
Length of current 1012 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 20 minutes shorter than next lunation 1013 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠29.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠52.5°. 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 27 November 2081 at 03:46 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 December 2081 at 00:48 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 372 239 km (231 299 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 288 km (251 213 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 24 November 2081 at 11:52 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 December 2081 at 17:00 in ♓ Pisces.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 19 November 2081 at 01:19 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.201°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.151° in the next southern standstill on 1 December 2081 at 21:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 30 November 2081 at 14:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
