Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 16 November 2062 at 20:48.
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 first ∠3° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2062 after 26 days on 16 December 2062 at 08:17.
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 777 of Meeus index or 1730 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 28 minutes. It is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 19 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠86.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠123°.
Moon is at perigee at 18:46. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 7 November 2062 at 23:42 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next apogee on 5 December 2062 at 19:32 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 365 580 km (227 161 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 072 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 776 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after ascending node on 12 November 2062 at 01:21 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 November 2062 at 21:08 in ♍ Virgo.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 04:48 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠28.390°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-28.324° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 2 December 2062 at 12:24.
In 11 days on 30 November 2062 at 23:01 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.
