Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2093 after 23 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 20 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 23:18, this is 14 days after last perigee on 26 October 2093 at 10:39 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 21 November 2093 at 17:56 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 404 417 km (251 293 mi) away from Earth. It is 991 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 292 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 8 November 2093 at 15:46 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 November 2093 at 07:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 8 November 2093 at 02:08 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.330°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.406° in the next southern standstill on 21 November 2093 at 22:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 9 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.
