Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 30 October 2052 at 19:39.
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 ∠12° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1870" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2052 after 4 days on 6 November 2052 at 21:09.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 653 of Meeus index or 1606 from Brown series.
Length of current 653 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 59 minutes. It is 1 hour and 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 654 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 15 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠138.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠165.7°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 26 October 2052 at 13:06 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 November 2052 at 21:03 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 383 215 km (238 119 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 409 km (222 705 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 20 October 2052 at 15:02 in ♍ Virgo, 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 4 November 2052 at 03:03 in ♈ Aries.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 27 October 2052 at 13:19 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.228°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.287° in the next northern standstill on 9 November 2052 at 18:39 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 6 November 2052 at 21:09 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
