Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 18 November 2093 at 19:57.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1946" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2093 after 12 days on 2 December 2093 at 22:24.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1161 of Meeus index or 2114 from Brown series.
Length of current 1161 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 50 minutes. It is 32 minutes longer than next lunation 1162 length.
Length of current synodic month is 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠314.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠335.6°. 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 9 November 2093 at 23:18 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 November 2093 at 17:56 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 368 356 km (228 886 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 650 km (227 204 mi).
11 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 November 2093 at 07:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 8 November 2093 at 02:08 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.330°. Next day 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 12 days on 2 December 2093 at 22:24 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
