Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 12 November 2061 at 03:40.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2061 after 11 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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 765 of Meeus index or 1718 from Brown series.
Length of current 765 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 53 minutes. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 766 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠151.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠176.8°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 02:30, this is 15 days after last perigee on 30 October 2061 at 10:28 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2061 at 19:57 in ♊ Gemini.
This apogee Moon is 406 329 km (252 481 mi) away from Earth. It is 921 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 380 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
6 days after its descending node on 8 November 2061 at 21:38 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 November 2061 at 11:10 in ♈ Aries.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 15:41 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-28.489°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠28.441° in its northern standstill point on 28 November 2061 at 23:49 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 27 November 2061 at 06:32 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
