Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 3 November 2087 at 15:48.
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 first ∠3° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2087 after 1 day on 10 November 2087 at 12:05.
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 1086 of Meeus index or 2039 from Brown series.
Length of current 1086 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 54 minutes. It is 25 minutes shorter than next lunation 1087 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠158.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠183°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 28 October 2087 at 19:16 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 November 2087 at 19:54 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 364 998 km (226 799 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 890 km (221 761 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 27 October 2087 at 13:13 in ♏ Scorpio, 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 10 November 2087 at 08:32 in ♉ Taurus.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 30 October 2087 at 09:37 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.046°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.050° in the next northern standstill on 12 November 2087 at 13:28 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 10 November 2087 at 12:05 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
