Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 21 November 2069 at 21:31.
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 ∠5° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2069 after 2 days on 28 November 2069 at 13:46.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 864 of Meeus index or 1817 from Brown series.
Length of current 864 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2069. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes longer than next lunation 865 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠185.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠211.5°. 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°).
13 days after point of apogee on 13 November 2069 at 07:36 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2069 at 21:53 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 363 665 km (225 971 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 487 km (222 132 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 10:32 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 9 December 2069 at 16:16 in ♎ Libra.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 16 November 2069 at 09:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.293°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.315° in the next northern standstill on 29 November 2069 at 13:04 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 days on 28 November 2069 at 13:46 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
