Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1948".
The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 2079.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°.
11 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 9 December 2079 at 06:48 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 364 546 km (226 518 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 291 km (222 010 mi).
3 days after ascending node on 4 December 2079 at 19:50 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 17 December 2079 at 08:14 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.
12 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 day to face maximum declination of ∠28.228° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 December 2079 at 17:56 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
