Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 9 November 2026 at 07:02.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1785" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2026 after 14 days on 24 November 2026 at 14:53.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 332 of Meeus index or 1285 from Brown series.
Length of current 332 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 50 minutes. It is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 333 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 6 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 57 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠129.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠159.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
12 days after point of perigee on 28 October 2026 at 18:01 in ♊ Gemini. 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 13 November 2026 at 17:50 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 401 466 km (249 459 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 619 km (252 040 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 3 November 2026 at 03:02 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 November 2026 at 11:49 in ♒ Aquarius.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 29 October 2026 at 17:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.795°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.697° in the next southern standstill on 12 November 2026 at 09:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 14 days on 24 November 2026 at 14:53 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
