Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 23 November 2079 at 11:29.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2079 after 11 days on 8 December 2079 at 15:16.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 988 of Meeus index or 1941 from Brown series.
Length of current 988 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 2 minutes. It is 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 989 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠148.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠174.6°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 26 November 2079 at 15:51 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 December 2079 at 06:48 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 404 792 km (251 526 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 291 km (222 010 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 20 November 2079 at 06:11 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 December 2079 at 19:50 in ♈ Aries.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 26 November 2079 at 04:46 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.260°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.228° in the next northern standstill on 9 December 2079 at 17:56 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 8 December 2079 at 15:16 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
