Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 16 November 2039 at 05:46.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2039 after 13 days on 30 November 2039 at 16:49.
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 493 of Meeus index or 1446 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 46 minutes. It is 7 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 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 11 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠340.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠356.9°.
Moon is at perigee at 09:19. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 5 November 2039 at 04:29 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 2 December 2039 at 16:15 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 359 171 km (223 179 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 337 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 185 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 12:34 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 1 December 2039 at 02:11 in ♊ Gemini.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 6 November 2039 at 03:44 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.428°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-25.460° at the point of next southern standstill on 19 November 2039 at 08:56 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 13 days on 30 November 2039 at 16:49 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
