Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 8 November 2081 at 09:40.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1786" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2081 after 2 days on 16 November 2081 at 13:19.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1012 of Meeus index or 1965 from Brown series.
Length of current 1012 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 20 minutes shorter than next lunation 1013 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠29.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠52.5°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 11 November 2081 at 04:54 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2081 at 03:46 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 401 259 km (249 331 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 156 km (228 140 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 10 November 2081 at 15:13 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 November 2081 at 11:52 in ♍ Virgo.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 4 November 2081 at 12:34 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.291°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.201° in the next northern standstill on 19 November 2081 at 01:19 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 days on 16 November 2081 at 13:19 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
