Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 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 ∠5° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2093 after 9 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 5 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 21 November 2093 at 17:56 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 December 2093 at 19:07 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 363 298 km (225 743 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 269 km (251 822 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 22 November 2093 at 07:46 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 December 2093 at 20:16 in ♋ Cancer.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 21 November 2093 at 22:15 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.406°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.462° in the next northern standstill on 5 December 2093 at 10:39 in ♋ Cancer.
After 9 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.
