Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 31 October 2039 at 22:36.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2039 after 25 days on 30 November 2039 at 16:49.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 492 of Meeus index or 1445 from Brown series.
Length of current 492 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 37 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2039. It is 9 minutes shorter than next lunation 493 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 7 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 2 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠321.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠340.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 04:29, this is 15 days after last perigee on 20 October 2039 at 05:11 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 17 November 2039 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 405 534 km (251 987 mi) away from Earth. It is 126 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 175 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 3 November 2039 at 19:55 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 November 2039 at 12:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous South standstill on 23 October 2039 at 01:02 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.344°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.428° in the next northern standstill on 6 November 2039 at 03:44 in ♋ Cancer.
After 10 days on 16 November 2039 at 05:46 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
