Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 20 November 2042 at 14:31.
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 ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2042 after 3 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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 530 of Meeus index or 1483 from Brown series.
Length of current 530 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 531 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 17 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 46 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠201.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠232°. 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°).
12 days 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 November 2042 at 22:40 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 364 278 km (226 352 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 651 km (223 477 mi).
13 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 November 2042 at 01:03 in ♈ Aries.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 16 November 2042 at 08:09 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.390°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.344° in the next northern standstill on 29 November 2042 at 03:21 in ♋ Cancer.
After 3 days on 27 November 2042 at 06:06 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
