Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 1 November 2060 at 10:56.
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 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2060 after 1 day 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 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 perigee on this date at 22:11, this is 13 days after last apogee on 25 October 2060 at 00:25 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 21 November 2060 at 01:49 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 356 812 km (221 713 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2060. It is 5 696 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 387 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 00:56 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 20 November 2060 at 10:05 in ♎ Libra.
At 00:56 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
8 days after previous South standstill on 29 October 2060 at 17:05 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.126°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.098° in the next northern standstill on 11 November 2060 at 10:15 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day 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.
