Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1872" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2014 after 14 days on 6 December 2014 at 12:27.
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 12:32 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 184 of Meeus index or 1137 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 4 minutes. It is 1 hour and 26 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 20 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 43 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠289.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠318°.
7 days 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 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 November 2014 at 23:11 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 382 930 km (237 942 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 825 km (229 799 mi).
3 days after ascending node on 19 November 2014 at 08:18 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 2 December 2014 at 08:32 in ♈ Aries.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
12 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 day to face maximum declination of ∠-18.625° at the point of next southern standstill on 24 November 2014 at 08:17 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
