Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 11 November 2070 at 03:20.
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 first ∠0° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1928" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2070 after 1 day on 18 November 2070 at 05:40.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 7 November 2070 at 02:03 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2070 at 07:55 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 371 755 km (230 998 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 729 km (222 904 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 15 November 2070 at 11:41 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 November 2070 at 03:19 in ♎ Libra.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 6 November 2070 at 16:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.443°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.488° in the next northern standstill on 20 November 2070 at 04:59 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day 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.
