Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1946".
The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 2039.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle 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°.
14 days after point of perigee on 17 November 2039 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 2 December 2039 at 16:15 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 405 175 km (251 764 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 245 km (252 429 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♊ Gemini at 02:11 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 14 December 2039 at 23:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.
At 02:11 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
12 days since the previous standstill on 19 November 2039 at 08:56 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.460°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠25.474° at the point of next northern standstill on 3 December 2039 at 10:32 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
