Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 31 October 2077 at 10:36.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1945" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2077 after 28 days on 29 November 2077 at 21:43.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 962 of Meeus index or 1915 from Brown series.
Length of current 962 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 53 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2077. It is 47 minutes longer than next lunation 963 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠194.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠222.6°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 30 October 2077 at 10:09 in ♈ Aries. 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 11 November 2077 at 17:19 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 368 617 km (229 048 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 768 km (252 133 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 18:57 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 16 November 2077 at 02:10 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 18:57 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
9 days after previous South standstill on 23 October 2077 at 01:59 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.450°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.487° in the next northern standstill on 4 November 2077 at 15:36 in ♋ Cancer.
After 14 days on 15 November 2077 at 17:00 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
