Moon* ♐ Sagittarius
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1957" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2004 after 15 days on 26 December 2004 at 15:06.
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 14:27 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 60 of Meeus index or 1013 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 2 minutes. It is 28 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 42 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 27 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠327.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠345.8°.
11 days after point of apogee on 30 November 2004 at 11:25 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 12 December 2004 at 21:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 366 206 km (227 550 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 986 km (222 442 mi).
2 days after descending node on 8 December 2004 at 16:57 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 21 December 2004 at 06:51 in ♉ Taurus.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 29 November 2004 at 08:28 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.963°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-27.935° at the point of next southern standstill on 13 December 2004 at 00:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
