Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 2 December 2093 at 22:24.
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 first ∠1° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1786" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 28 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
12 days 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 December 2093 at 19:07 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 401 424 km (249 433 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 269 km (251 822 mi).
12 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 December 2093 at 20:16 in ♋ Cancer.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 21 November 2093 at 22:15 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.406°. Next day 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 13 days on 18 December 2093 at 07:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
