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 ∠16° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1901" and ∠1948".
The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 2098.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1223 of Meeus index or 2176 from Brown series.
Length of current 1223 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 33 minutes. It is 2 hours and 10 minutes shorter than next lunation 1224 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠78.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠115.9°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 30 November 2098 at 00:33 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 December 2098 at 21:02 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 377 118 km (234 330 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 722 km (227 870 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 3 December 2098 at 17:44 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 December 2098 at 15:17 in ♎ Libra.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous South standstill on 25 November 2098 at 09:14 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.393°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.352° in the next northern standstill on 9 December 2098 at 15:23 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
