Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 14 November 2092 at 03:04.
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 ∠8° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1798" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2092 after 23 days on 13 December 2092 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 1148 of Meeus index or 2101 from Brown series.
Length of current 1148 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 7 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2092. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 1149 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠334°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠350.8°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 17 November 2092 at 00:09 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 November 2092 at 18:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 398 650 km (247 710 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 267 km (221 995 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 09:44 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 3 December 2092 at 03:12 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 09:44 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
2 days after previous North standstill on 18 November 2092 at 03:46 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.732°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.787° in the next southern standstill on 1 December 2092 at 09:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 8 days on 29 November 2092 at 05:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
