Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days 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 ∠17° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1883" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2029 after 23 days on 20 December 2029 at 22:46.
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 20 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°).
8 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 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 December 2029 at 10:38 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 380 675 km (236 540 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 274 km (223 243 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 23 November 2029 at 08:55 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 December 2029 at 09:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 22 November 2029 at 17:59 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.573°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.574° in the next southern standstill on 5 December 2029 at 21:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 8 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.
