Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 3 November 2093 at 06:46.
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 ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2093 after 24 days on 2 December 2093 at 22:24.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1160 of Meeus index or 2113 from Brown series.
Length of current 1160 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 24 minutes. It is 34 minutes longer than next lunation 1161 length.
Length of current synodic month is 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠284.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠314.2°. 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 26 October 2093 at 10:39 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 November 2093 at 23:18 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 404 631 km (251 426 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 417 km (251 293 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 15:46 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 22 November 2093 at 07:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 15:46 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 02:08 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.330°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.406° in its southern standstill point on 21 November 2093 at 22:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 10 days on 18 November 2093 at 19:57 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
