Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 28 October 2061 at 20:12.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2061 after 27 days on 27 November 2061 at 06:32.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 764 of Meeus index or 1717 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 58 minutes. It is 1 hour and 55 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 49 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠120.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠151.2°.
Moon is at perigee at 10:28. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 18 October 2061 at 11:00 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 15 November 2061 at 02:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 360 686 km (224 120 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 822 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 670 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after ascending node on 27 October 2061 at 02:38 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 November 2061 at 21:38 in ♎ Libra.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 19 October 2061 at 09:07 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.607°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.559° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 November 2061 at 14:48 in ♊ Gemini.
In 12 days on 12 November 2061 at 03:40 in ♏ Scorpio the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
