Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 28 October 2042 at 19:48.
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 ∠0° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1917" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2042 after 25 days on 27 November 2042 at 06:06.
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 529 of Meeus index or 1482 from Brown series.
Length of current 529 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 25 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2042. It is 24 minutes longer than next lunation 530 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠177.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠201.7°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 28 October 2042 at 11:27 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 November 2042 at 12:15 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 373 997 km (232 391 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 245 km (252 429 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 27 October 2042 at 16:01 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 November 2042 at 01:54 in ♎ Libra.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 17:22 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.455°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.390° in its southern standstill point on 16 November 2042 at 08:09 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 11 days on 12 November 2042 at 20:28 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
