Crescent ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 16 November 2068 at 17:33.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2068 after 19 days on 8 December 2068 at 23:42.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 851 of Meeus index or 1804 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 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 4 hours and 41 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 22 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠209.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠241.5°.
Moon is at apogee at 19:10. It is 11 days after previous perigee on 7 November 2068 at 20:44 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next perigee on 5 December 2068 at 19:40 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 405 230 km (251 798 mi) away from Earth. It is 178 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 479 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
9 days after descending node on 9 November 2068 at 19:59 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 November 2068 at 01:37 in ♏ Scorpio.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 11 November 2068 at 15:07 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.651°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.658° at the point of next southern standstill on 26 November 2068 at 02:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 5 days on 24 November 2068 at 21:42 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
