Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 2 November 2047 at 16:58.
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 ∠25° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1785" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2047 after 25 days on 2 December 2047 at 11:55.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 591 of Meeus index or 1544 from Brown series.
Length of current 591 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 31 minutes. It is 1 hour and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 592 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 56 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠346.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠2.2°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 3 November 2047 at 16:20 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 November 2047 at 09:53 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 401 438 km (249 442 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 788 km (221 698 mi).
13 days after its ascending node on 24 October 2047 at 02:50 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 November 2047 at 13:43 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 5 November 2047 at 23:50 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.612°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.580° in the next southern standstill on 19 November 2047 at 02:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 11 days on 17 November 2047 at 12:59 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
