Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 22 November 2014 at 12:32.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1918" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2014 after 12 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠289.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠318°.
9 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 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 November 2014 at 23:11 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 373 672 km (232 189 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 825 km (229 799 mi).
5 days after ascending node on 19 November 2014 at 08:18 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 2 December 2014 at 08:32 in ♈ Aries.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 08:17 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-18.625°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠18.660° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 7 December 2014 at 09:06.
In 12 days on 6 December 2014 at 12:27 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.
