Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days 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 about ∠15° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2061 after 24 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 20 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.
Length of current 764 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 58 minutes. It is 1 hour and 55 minutes shorter than next lunation 765 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠120.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠151.2°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 30 October 2061 at 10:28 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 November 2061 at 02:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 365 083 km (226 852 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 329 km (252 481 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 27 October 2061 at 02:38 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 November 2061 at 21:38 in ♎ Libra.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 1 November 2061 at 14:48 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.559°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.489° in the next southern standstill on 15 November 2061 at 15:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 9 days on 12 November 2061 at 03:40 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
