Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 24 October 2060 at 09:25.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2060 after 13 days on 8 November 2060 at 04:17.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 752 of Meeus index or 1705 from Brown series.
Length of current 752 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 50 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2060. It is 26 minutes longer than next lunation 753 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 6 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 57 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠174.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠199.1°. 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 apogee on this date at 00:25, this is 14 days after last perigee on 10 October 2060 at 10:18 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 7 November 2060 at 22:11 in ♉ Taurus.
This apogee Moon is 406 530 km (252 606 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2060. It is 1 122 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 179 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 24 October 2060 at 04:14 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 November 2060 at 00:56 in ♉ Taurus.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 15 October 2060 at 01:32 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.128°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.126° in the next southern standstill on 29 October 2060 at 17:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 8 November 2060 at 04:17 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
