Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 1 December 2079 at 16:13.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1892" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2079 after 4 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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 988 of Meeus index or 1941 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 2 minutes. It is 22 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 6 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠148.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠174.6°.
7 days after point of apogee on 26 November 2079 at 15:51 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 9 December 2079 at 06:48 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 378 934 km (235 459 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 291 km (222 010 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 19:50 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 17 December 2079 at 08:14 in ♎ Libra.
At 19:50 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
8 days since the previous standstill on 26 November 2079 at 04:46 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.260°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.228° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 December 2079 at 17:56 in ♊ Gemini.
In 4 days on 8 December 2079 at 15:16 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
