Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 10 November 2043 at 00:13.
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 first ∠3° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1955" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2043 after 1 day on 16 November 2043 at 21:52.
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 542 of Meeus index or 1495 from Brown series.
Length of current 542 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 40 minutes. It is 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 543 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 7 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠154°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠179.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
10 days after point of apogee on 4 November 2043 at 13:04 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 November 2043 at 09:11 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 366 646 km (227 823 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 949 km (221 798 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 13 November 2043 at 02:29 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 25 November 2043 at 15:09 in ♍ Virgo.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 6 November 2043 at 02:22 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.556°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.494° in the next northern standstill on 19 November 2043 at 05:40 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 16 November 2043 at 21:52 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
