Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 14 November 2031 at 21:10.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1943" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2031 after 12 days on 28 November 2031 at 23:18.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 394 of Meeus index or 1347 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 56 minutes. It is 55 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 48 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 21 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠312.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠334.7°.
10 days after point of apogee on 6 November 2031 at 02:45 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 17 November 2031 at 22:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 368 877 km (229 210 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 930 km (227 378 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 14 November 2031 at 15:32 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 27 November 2031 at 14:01 in ♉ Taurus.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 18:24 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-20.336°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2031. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠20.350° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 30 November 2031 at 00:08.
In 12 days on 28 November 2031 at 23:18 in ♊ Gemini 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.
