Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2042 after 15 days on 27 November 2042 at 06:06.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 10 November 2042 at 12:15 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 November 2042 at 22:40 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 405 294 km (251 838 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 651 km (223 477 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 10 November 2042 at 01:54 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 November 2042 at 01:03 in ♈ Aries.

9 days after previous North standstill on 1 November 2042 at 17:22 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.455°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.390° in the next southern standstill on 16 November 2042 at 08:09 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day 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.
