Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 6 December 2050 at 06:27.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1806" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2050 after 16 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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
4 days after point of apogee on 7 December 2050 at 02:39 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 20 December 2050 at 16:49 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 396 829 km (246 578 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 370 280 km (230 081 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 00:42 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 24 December 2050 at 02:37 in ♉ Taurus.
At 00:42 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
11 days 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 2 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 2 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.
