Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 2 November 2070 at 22:42.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2070 after 12 days on 18 November 2070 at 05:40.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 876 of Meeus index or 1829 from Brown series.
Length of current 876 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 877 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 27 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠134.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠163.2°. 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°).
14 days after point of perigee on 22 October 2070 at 03:04 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 November 2070 at 02:03 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 404 778 km (251 517 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 849 km (252 183 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 31 October 2070 at 23:32 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 15 November 2070 at 11:41 in ♈ Aries.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 23 October 2070 at 19:48 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.400°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.443° in the next southern standstill on 6 November 2070 at 16:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 18 November 2070 at 05:40 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
