Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days 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 about ∠16° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2030 after 27 days on 9 December 2030 at 22:40.
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 17 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°.
14 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 405 459 km (251 941 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).
1 day after descending node on 11 November 2030 at 18:45 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 25 November 2030 at 13:32 in ♏ Scorpio.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 16:17 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠21.904°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2030. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-21.903° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 26 November 2030 at 06:20.
In 12 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.
