Gibbous ♈ Aries
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 78% and growing larger. The 10 days young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 8 November 2081 at 09:40.
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 ∠23° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2081 after 5 days on 16 November 2081 at 13:19.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1012 of Meeus index or 1965 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 12 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 57 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠29.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠52.5°.
Moon is at apogee at 04:54. It is 11 days after previous perigee on 30 October 2081 at 07:55 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 27 November 2081 at 03:46 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 404 868 km (251 573 mi) away from Earth. It is 540 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 841 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 10 November 2081 at 15:13 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 November 2081 at 11:52 in ♍ Virgo.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 4 November 2081 at 12:34 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.291°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.201° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 November 2081 at 01:19 in ♊ Gemini.
In 5 days on 16 November 2081 at 13:19 in ♉ Taurus the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
