Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 14 November 2014 at 15:16.
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 ∠14° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2014 after 20 days on 6 December 2014 at 12:27.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 183 of Meeus index or 1136 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 36 minutes. It is 1 hour and 32 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 52 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 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 ∠252.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠289.3°.
1 day after point of apogee on 15 November 2014 at 01:56 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 November 2014 at 23:11 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 404 584 km (251 397 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 825 km (229 799 mi).
11 days after descending node on 5 November 2014 at 03:13 in ♈ Aries. 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 19 November 2014 at 08:18 in ♎ Libra.
24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 9 November 2014 at 23:12 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.575°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.625° at the point of next southern standstill on 24 November 2014 at 08:17 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 6 days on 22 November 2014 at 12:32 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
