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.
Length of current 777 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 28 minutes. It is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than next lunation 778 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 19 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠86.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠123°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:46, this is 11 days after last apogee on 7 November 2062 at 23:42 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the 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 farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after its ascending node on 12 November 2062 at 01:21 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 November 2062 at 21:08 in ♍ Virgo.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 04:48 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.390°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.324° in its southern standstill point on 2 December 2062 at 12:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 11 days on 30 November 2062 at 23:01 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
