Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 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 ∠22° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1941" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2085 after 9 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 4 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.
Length of current 1062 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 18 minutes. It is 1 hour and 32 minutes longer than next lunation 1063 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 29 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠271.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠305°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
10 days after point of apogee on 10 November 2085 at 18:58 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 November 2085 at 13:37 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 369 274 km (229 456 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 952 km (229 878 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 19 November 2085 at 09:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 December 2085 at 07:25 in ♊ Gemini.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 19 November 2085 at 01:11 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.309°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.305° in the next northern standstill on 1 December 2085 at 23:22 in ♊ Gemini.
After 9 days on 1 December 2085 at 08:10 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
