Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 29 October 2025 at 16:21.
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 about ∠12° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1948" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2025 after 2 days on 5 November 2025 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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 319 of Meeus index or 1272 from Brown series.
Length of current 319 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 22 minutes. It is 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 320 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 38 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 25 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠181.4°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 23 October 2025 at 23:31 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 5 November 2025 at 22:29 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 368 044 km (228 692 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 833 km (221 726 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 1 November 2025 at 17:46 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 November 2025 at 06:38 in ♍ Virgo.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 26 October 2025 at 12:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.457°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.387° in the next northern standstill on 8 November 2025 at 11:41 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 days on 5 November 2025 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.
