Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 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 ∠6° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1946" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2050 after 2 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 12 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 25 November 2050 at 05:46 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 December 2050 at 02:39 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 368 285 km (228 842 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 411 km (251 289 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 21:02 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 11 December 2050 at 00:42 in ♏ Scorpio.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 16 November 2050 at 17:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.791°. Next 3 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 2 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.
