Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 17 November 2085 at 08:20.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1899" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2085 after 11 days on 1 December 2085 at 08:10.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1062 of Meeus index or 2015 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 18 minutes. It is 1 hour and 32 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 33 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 29 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠271.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠305°.
8 days after point of apogee on 10 November 2085 at 18:58 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 25 November 2085 at 13:37 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 377 452 km (234 538 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 952 km (229 878 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 09:10 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 2 December 2085 at 07:25 in ♊ Gemini.
At 09:10 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
At 01:11 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-23.309°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠23.305° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 1 December 2085 at 23:22.
In 11 days on 1 December 2085 at 08:10 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.
