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 ∠23° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2080 after 26 days on 26 December 2080 at 17:03.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1000 of Meeus index or 1953 from Brown series.
Length of current 1000 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 33 minutes. It is 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter than next lunation 1001 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠82.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠119.5°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:40, this is 11 days after last apogee on 18 November 2080 at 12:07 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 16 December 2080 at 08:18 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 366 156 km (227 519 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 648 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 200 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
8 days after its ascending node on 22 November 2080 at 09:33 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 December 2080 at 06:12 in ♎ Libra.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 28 November 2080 at 22:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.451°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.401° in the next southern standstill on 12 December 2080 at 02:19 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 10 days on 11 December 2080 at 07:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
