Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 28 October 2044 at 23:28.
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 ∠16° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1868" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2044 after 2 days on 5 November 2044 at 12:27.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 554 of Meeus index or 1507 from Brown series.
Length of current 554 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 21 minutes. It is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 555 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 26 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠90.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠126.5°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 27 October 2044 at 11:18 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 November 2044 at 06:14 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 383 782 km (238 471 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 997 km (226 799 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 31 October 2044 at 17:08 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 13 November 2044 at 12:05 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.
8 days after previous South standstill on 25 October 2044 at 15:51 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.259°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.171° in the next northern standstill on 8 November 2044 at 11:13 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 days on 5 November 2044 at 12:27 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
