Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2054 after 23 days on 14 December 2054 at 22:41.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 678 of Meeus index or 1631 from Brown series.
Length of current 678 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 679 length.
Length of current synodic month is 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠44°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠72.4°. 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 8 November 2054 at 19:52 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 November 2054 at 15:48 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 364 388 km (226 420 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 009 km (229 913 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 22:10 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 5 December 2054 at 06:07 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 22:10 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
2 days after previous North standstill on 18 November 2054 at 17:11 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.632°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.707° in the next southern standstill on 1 December 2054 at 17:59 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 29 November 2054 at 08:33 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
