Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 14 November 2086 at 05:11.
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 ∠9° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2086 after 1 day on 20 November 2086 at 20:12.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 08:15, this is 15 days after last apogee on 3 November 2086 at 17:53 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 1 December 2086 at 07:42 in ♎ Libra.
This perigee Moon is 360 374 km (223 926 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 134 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 982 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 November 2086 at 04:47 in ♊ Gemini.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 9 November 2086 at 06:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.623°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.622° in the next northern standstill on 22 November 2086 at 03:31 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day 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.
