Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 20 November 2061 at 08:11.
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 ∠10° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1904" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2061 after 3 days on 27 November 2061 at 06:32.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 15 November 2061 at 02:30 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2061 at 19:57 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 376 387 km (233 876 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 101 km (221 892 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 11:10 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 5 December 2061 at 23:41 in ♎ Libra.
At 11:10 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
7 days after previous South standstill on 15 November 2061 at 15:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.489°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.441° in the next northern standstill on 28 November 2061 at 23:49 in ♊ Gemini.
After 3 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.
