Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 6 November 2029 at 04:24.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2029 after 13 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 369 of Meeus index or 1322 from Brown series.
Length of current 369 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 370 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 53 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠3.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠19.9°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 5 November 2029 at 23:09 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 November 2029 at 02:53 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 365 175 km (226 909 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 241 km (252 426 mi).
11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 November 2029 at 23:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 26 October 2029 at 12:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.659°. Next day 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 13 days on 21 November 2029 at 04:03 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
