Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 9 November 2079 at 04:34.
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 about ∠6° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2079 after 28 days on 8 December 2079 at 15:16.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 987 of Meeus index or 1940 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 10 minutes. It is 1 hour and 52 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 4 hours and 26 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠116.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠148.4°.
Moon is at perigee at 21:38. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 29 October 2079 at 23:36 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 26 November 2079 at 15:51 in ♑ Capricorn.
This perigee Moon is 361 151 km (224 409 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 357 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 205 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after ascending node on 7 November 2079 at 11:17 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 20 November 2079 at 06:11 in ♎ Libra.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 29 October 2079 at 22:08 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.363°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠28.320° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 November 2079 at 08:30 in ♋ Cancer.
In 12 days on 23 November 2079 at 11:29 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.
