Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days 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 ∠6° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2093 after 11 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 3 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 17:56, this is 11 days after last apogee on 9 November 2093 at 23:18 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 7 December 2093 at 19:07 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 365 650 km (227 204 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 142 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 706 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 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.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 22:15 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-22.406°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.462° in its northern standstill point on 5 December 2093 at 10:39 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 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.
