Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 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 ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2042 after 1 day 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 13 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.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 37 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 5 hours and 17 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠201.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠232°.
Moon is at perigee at 22:40. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 10 November 2042 at 12:15 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 8 December 2042 at 00:37 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 359 651 km (223 477 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 857 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 705 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 24 November 2042 at 01:03 in ♈ Aries. 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 7 December 2042 at 05:37 in ♎ Libra.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 16 November 2042 at 08:09 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.390°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.344° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 November 2042 at 03:21 in ♋ Cancer.
In 1 day on 27 November 2042 at 06:06 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.
