Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 30 October 2029 at 11:32.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2029 after 15 days on 21 November 2029 at 04:03.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 368 of Meeus index or 1321 from Brown series.
Length of current 368 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 10 minutes. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 369 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 35 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠348.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠3.8°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 23:09, this is 13 days after last apogee on 23 October 2029 at 02:02 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 19 November 2029 at 02:53 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 356 900 km (221 767 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 608 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 456 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after its descending node on 27 October 2029 at 05:23 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 November 2029 at 23:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 26 October 2029 at 12:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.659°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.613° in the next southern standstill on 8 November 2029 at 11:00 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 6 November 2029 at 04:24 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
