Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 13 November 2029 at 00:35.
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 first ∠4° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1785" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2029 after 4 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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
10 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 November 2029 at 02:53 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 401 440 km (249 443 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 241 km (252 426 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 8 November 2029 at 23:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 November 2029 at 08:55 in ♊ Gemini.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 8 November 2029 at 11:00 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.613°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.573° in the next northern standstill on 22 November 2029 at 17:59 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 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.
