Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 28 October 2082 at 12:13.
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 ∠7° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1778" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2082 after 3 days on 5 November 2082 at 14:38.
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 1024 of Meeus index or 1977 from Brown series.
Length of current 1024 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 29 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1025 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 54 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠358°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠13.3°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 21 October 2082 at 21:44 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 November 2082 at 15:15 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 403 101 km (250 475 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 429 km (252 543 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 29 October 2082 at 23:42 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 November 2082 at 14:12 in ♌ Leo.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 25 October 2082 at 12:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.625°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.510° in the next northern standstill on 9 November 2082 at 00:08 in ♋ Cancer.
After 3 days on 5 November 2082 at 14:38 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
