Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days 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 about ∠19° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1949" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2029 after 12 days on 21 November 2029 at 04:03.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 3 days 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°).
2 days 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 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 November 2029 at 02:53 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 367 830 km (228 559 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 241 km (252 426 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 23:44 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 23 November 2029 at 08:55 in ♊ Gemini.
At 23:44 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 11:00 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-23.613°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠23.573° in its northern standstill point on 22 November 2029 at 17:59 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 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.
