Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 28 November 2050 at 15:09.
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 ∠15° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1835" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2050 after 26 days on 28 December 2050 at 05:15.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 629 of Meeus index or 1582 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 57 minutes longer 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 2 hours and 53 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠245°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠282.8°.
6 days after point of perigee on 25 November 2050 at 05:46 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 7 December 2050 at 02:39 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 390 624 km (242 723 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 411 km (251 289 mi).
4 days after descending node on 26 November 2050 at 21:02 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 11 December 2050 at 00:42 in ♏ Scorpio.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 29 November 2050 at 15:05 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.809°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.822° at the point of next southern standstill on 14 December 2050 at 02:00 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 12 days on 14 December 2050 at 05:18 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
