Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 17 November 2072 at 16:03.
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 ∠18° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2072 after 6 days on 25 November 2072 at 16:59.
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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 901 of Meeus index or 1854 from Brown series.
Length of current 901 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 38 minutes. It is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 902 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 3 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠41.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠69°. 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 08:15, this is 11 days after last perigee on 7 November 2072 at 14:09 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 4 December 2072 at 11:52 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 404 457 km (251 318 mi) away from Earth. It is 951 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 252 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 18 November 2072 at 12:11 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 December 2072 at 07:21 in ♍ Virgo.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 13 November 2072 at 14:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.935°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.023° in the next northern standstill on 28 November 2072 at 02:29 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 25 November 2072 at 16:59 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
