Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 6 November 2086 at 11:53.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1824" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2086 after 11 days on 20 November 2086 at 20:12.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1074 of Meeus index or 2027 from Brown series.
Length of current 1074 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 31 minutes longer than next lunation 1075 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠206.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠238°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 3 November 2086 at 17:53 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2086 at 08:15 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 392 982 km (244 188 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 374 km (223 926 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 8 November 2086 at 03:04 in ♐ Sagittarius, 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 21 November 2086 at 04:47 in ♊ Gemini.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 06:12 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-21.623°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠21.622° in its northern standstill point on 22 November 2086 at 03:31 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 20 November 2086 at 20:12 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
