Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 24 November 2070 at 20:20.
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 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1783" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2070 after 16 days on 17 December 2070 at 16:05.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 876 of Meeus index or 1829 from Brown series.
Length of current 876 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 877 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 27 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠134.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠163.2°. 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 perigee on 19 November 2070 at 07:55 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 December 2070 at 13:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 402 013 km (249 799 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 585 km (252 640 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 28 November 2070 at 03:19 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 December 2070 at 18:04 in ♈ Aries.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 20 November 2070 at 04:59 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.488°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.543° in the next southern standstill on 4 December 2070 at 00:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day on 2 December 2070 at 16:53 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
