Moon ♉ Taurus
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 97% and growing larger. The 13 days young Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 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 about ∠9° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2029 after 1 day 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 13 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.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 53 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠3.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠19.9°.
Moon is at apogee at 02:53. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 5 November 2029 at 23:09 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 4 December 2029 at 10:38 in ♏ Scorpio.
This apogee Moon is 406 241 km (252 426 mi) away from Earth. It is 833 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 468 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
10 days after ascending node on 8 November 2029 at 23:44 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 23 November 2029 at 08:55 in ♊ Gemini.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 8 November 2029 at 11:00 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.613°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.573° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 November 2029 at 17:59 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day on 21 November 2029 at 04:03 in ♉ Taurus the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
