Moon* ♉ Taurus
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 99% and growing larger. The 14 days young Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 7 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 ∠12° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1800" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2081 after 1 day on 16 November 2081 at 13:19.
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 14 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°.
4 days after point of apogee on 11 November 2081 at 04:54 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 November 2081 at 03:46 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 398 115 km (247 377 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 156 km (228 140 mi).
4 days after ascending node on 10 November 2081 at 15:13 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 November 2081 at 11:52 in ♍ Virgo.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
10 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 3 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 1 day 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.
