Gibbous ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 13 November 2046 at 17:04.
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 ∠5° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1912" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2046 after 23 days on 13 December 2046 at 09:55.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 579 of Meeus index or 1532 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 33 minutes. It is 2 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 11 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 58 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠16.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠35.1°.
9 days after point of apogee on 9 November 2046 at 19:38 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 25 November 2046 at 18:09 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 374 798 km (232 889 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 050 km (225 589 mi).
1 day after descending node on 18 November 2046 at 21:00 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 1 December 2046 at 12:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 16 November 2046 at 01:54 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.076°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.048° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 November 2046 at 22:56 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 8 days on 27 November 2046 at 21:50 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
