Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 25 November 2030 at 06:46.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2030 after 13 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 382 of Meeus index or 1335 from Brown series.
Length of current 382 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 46 minutes. It is 13 minutes shorter than next lunation 383 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠349.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠5.3°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 25 November 2030 at 21:07 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 December 2030 at 10:03 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 363 298 km (225 743 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 371 km (252 507 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 25 November 2030 at 13:32 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 December 2030 at 01:17 in ♊ Gemini.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 06:20 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-21.903°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2030. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠21.909° in its northern standstill point on 9 December 2030 at 22:37 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 9 December 2030 at 22:40 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
