Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 4 November 2076 at 01:58.
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 ∠16° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1942" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2076 after 2 days on 10 November 2076 at 21:07.
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 950 of Meeus index or 1903 from Brown series.
Length of current 950 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 38 minutes. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes longer than next lunation 951 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠254.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠290.9°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 6 November 2076 at 20:15 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 November 2076 at 23:07 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 369 114 km (229 357 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 391 km (251 277 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 31 October 2076 at 02:13 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 November 2076 at 22:52 in ♊ Gemini.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 1 November 2076 at 19:09 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.032°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.085° in the next northern standstill on 14 November 2076 at 19:07 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 10 November 2076 at 21:07 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
