Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 21 November 2029 at 04:03.
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 ∠15° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1786" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2029 after 28 days on 20 December 2029 at 22:46.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
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 369 of Meeus index or 1322 from Brown series.
Length of current 369 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 370 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 53 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠3.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠19.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
3 days after point of apogee on 19 November 2029 at 02:53 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 December 2029 at 10:38 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 401 283 km (249 346 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 274 km (223 243 mi).
13 days after its ascending node on 8 November 2029 at 23:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 November 2029 at 08:55 in ♊ Gemini.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 17:59 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠23.573°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2029. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-23.574° in its southern standstill point on 5 December 2029 at 21:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 5 December 2029 at 14:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
