Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2025 after 14 days on 4 December 2025 at 23:14.
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 06:47 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 320 of Meeus index or 1273 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 56 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2025. It is 47 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 6 hours and 12 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 51 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠181.4°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠207°.
Moon is at apogee at 02:48. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 5 November 2025 at 22:29 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 4 December 2025 at 11:06 in ♊ Gemini.
This apogee Moon is 406 693 km (252 707 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2025. It is 1 285 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 16 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
6 days after descending node on 14 November 2025 at 06:38 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 28 November 2025 at 21:33 in ♓ Pisces.
18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 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 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.295° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 November 2025 at 18:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
