Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 10 November 2030 at 03:30.
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 first ∠4° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2030 after 28 days on 9 December 2030 at 22:40.
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 381 of Meeus index or 1334 from Brown series.
Length of current 381 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 30 minutes. It is 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 382 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠332.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠349.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
13 days after point of perigee on 28 October 2030 at 12:07 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 November 2030 at 05:00 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 404 698 km (251 468 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 993 km (252 272 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 18:45 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 25 November 2030 at 13:32 in ♏ Scorpio.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 29 October 2030 at 20:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.941°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.904° in the next northern standstill on 12 November 2030 at 16:17 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 25 November 2030 at 06:46 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
