Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 21 December 2050 at 04:15.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2050 after 5 days on 28 December 2050 at 05:15.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 630 of Meeus index or 1583 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 40 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 56 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 7 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠282.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠313.4°.
1 day after point of perigee on 20 December 2050 at 16:49 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 4 January 2051 at 00:04 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 364 541 km (226 515 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 452 km (251 315 mi).
11 days after ascending node on 11 December 2050 at 00:42 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 December 2050 at 02:37 in ♉ Taurus.
11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 14 December 2050 at 02:00 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.822°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.815° at the point of next northern standstill on 27 December 2050 at 00:57 in ♊ Gemini.
In 5 days on 28 December 2050 at 05:15 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
