Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Waning Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 94% and getting smaller. The 17 days old Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days 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 about ∠13° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 27 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51.
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 17 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.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 50 minutes. It is 32 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 54 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 15 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠314.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠335.6°.
13 days after point of perigee on 21 November 2093 at 17:56 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 7 December 2093 at 19:07 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 403 697 km (250 846 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 269 km (251 822 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 20:16 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 19 December 2093 at 15:25 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 20:16 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
At 10:39 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.462°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2093. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.474° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 19 December 2093 at 08:08.
In 12 days on 18 December 2093 at 07:47 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
