Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 23 November 2077 at 05:31.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2077 after 2 days on 29 November 2077 at 21:43.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 963 of Meeus index or 1916 from Brown series.
Length of current 963 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 6 minutes. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes longer than next lunation 964 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 22 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 41 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠222.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠258.6°. 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 16:38, this is 15 days after last apogee on 11 November 2077 at 17:19 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 9 December 2077 at 10:56 in ♎ Libra.
This perigee Moon is 363 178 km (225 668 mi) away from Earth. It is 670 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 7 178 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after its descending node on 16 November 2077 at 02:10 in ♏ Scorpio, 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 29 November 2077 at 05:49 in ♉ Taurus.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 19 November 2077 at 07:28 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.504°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.488° in the next northern standstill on 2 December 2077 at 01:46 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 29 November 2077 at 21:43 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
