Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 19 November 2021 at 08:58.
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 ∠22° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2021 after 27 days on 19 December 2021 at 04:36.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 270 of Meeus index or 1223 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 28 minutes. It is 22 minutes shorter 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 2 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 53 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠342.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠358.3°.
Moon is at apogee at 02:14. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 5 November 2021 at 22:23 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 4 December 2021 at 10:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 406 276 km (252 448 mi) away from Earth. It is 868 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 433 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 19 November 2021 at 17:59 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 3 December 2021 at 14:58 in ♏ Scorpio.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 8 November 2021 at 16:27 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.328°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠26.342° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 November 2021 at 22:43 in ♋ Cancer.
In 12 days on 4 December 2021 at 07:43 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.
