Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 12 November 2025 at 05:28.
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 ∠25° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1782" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2025 after 17 days on 4 December 2025 at 23:14.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 319 of Meeus index or 1272 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 22 minutes. It is 34 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 5 hours and 38 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 25 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠181.4°.
11 days after point of perigee on 5 November 2025 at 22:29 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 20 November 2025 at 02:48 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 402 341 km (250 003 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 693 km (252 707 mi).
3 days after descending node on 14 November 2025 at 06:38 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 28 November 2025 at 21:33 in ♓ Pisces.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 8 November 2025 at 11:41 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.387°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.295° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 November 2025 at 18:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 days on 20 November 2025 at 06:47 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.
