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 ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1887" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2091 after 23 days on 25 December 2091 at 21:59.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1136 of Meeus index or 2089 from Brown series.
Length of current 1136 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 12 minutes. It is 1 hour and 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 1137 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠4.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠20.8°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 23 November 2091 at 23:32 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 December 2091 at 08:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 379 918 km (236 070 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 394 km (223 317 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 18:52 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 15 December 2091 at 07:03 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 18:52 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
3 days after previous North standstill on 28 November 2091 at 22:15 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.417°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.452° in the next southern standstill on 11 December 2091 at 21:10 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 8 days on 10 December 2091 at 13:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
