Gibbous ♊ Gemini
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.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 30 minutes. It is 16 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 2 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 55 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠332.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠349.8°.
13 days after point of perigee on 28 October 2030 at 12:07 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 13 November 2030 at 05:00 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 404 698 km (251 468 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 993 km (252 272 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 18:45 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 25 November 2030 at 13:32 in ♏ Scorpio.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 29 October 2030 at 20:28 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.941°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠21.904° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 November 2030 at 16:17 in ♊ Gemini.
In 13 days on 25 November 2030 at 06:46 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
