Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 12 November 2019 at 13:34.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1903" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2019 after 25 days on 12 December 2019 at 05:12.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 245 of Meeus index or 1198 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 27 minutes. It is 2 hours and 41 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 17 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 52 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠28.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠50.7°.
9 days after point of apogee on 7 November 2019 at 08:37 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 November 2019 at 07:54 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 376 634 km (234 030 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 721 km (227 870 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 08:48 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 29 November 2019 at 04:13 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 08:48 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
At 13:52 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠23.151°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-23.200° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 29 November 2019 at 10:36.
In 10 days on 26 November 2019 at 15:06 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
