Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 21 November 2050 at 20:25.
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 ∠22° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2050 after 3 days on 28 November 2050 at 15:09.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 629 of Meeus index or 1582 from Brown series.
Length of current 629 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 57 minutes longer than next lunation 630 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 53 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠245°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠282.8°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 05:46, this is 15 days after last apogee on 9 November 2050 at 06:44 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 7 December 2050 at 02:39 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 366 851 km (227 951 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 343 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 3 505 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after its ascending node on 13 November 2050 at 17:21 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 November 2050 at 21:02 in ♉ Taurus.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 16 November 2050 at 17:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.791°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.809° in the next northern standstill on 29 November 2050 at 15:05 in ♊ Gemini.
After 3 days on 28 November 2050 at 15:09 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
