Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 18 November 2070 at 05:40.
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 ∠0° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2070 after 27 days on 17 December 2070 at 16:05.
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 876 of Meeus index or 1829 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 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 5 hours and 27 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠134.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠163.2°.
1 day after point of perigee on 19 November 2070 at 07:55 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 4 December 2070 at 13:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 363 314 km (225 753 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 14 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 585 km (252 640 mi).
5 days after descending node on 15 November 2070 at 11:41 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 28 November 2070 at 03:19 in ♎ Libra.
19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 04:59 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠18.488°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-18.543° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 4 December 2070 at 00:15.
In 12 days on 2 December 2070 at 16:53 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.
