Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 66% and growing larger. The 9 days young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 9 November 2005 at 01:57.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2005 after 5 days on 16 November 2005 at 00:58.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 72 of Meeus index or 1025 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 36 minutes. It is 1 hour and 25 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 52 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 11 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠273.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠306.3°.
Moon is at perigee at 00:15. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 26 October 2005 at 09:34 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 23 November 2005 at 06:17 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 370 014 km (229 916 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2005. It is 7 506 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 342 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
10 days after descending node on 31 October 2005 at 00:32 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 13 November 2005 at 02:02 in ♈ Aries.
24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 5 November 2005 at 22:03 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.529°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.471° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 November 2005 at 23:39 in ♊ Gemini.
In 5 days on 16 November 2005 at 00:58 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
