Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2089 after 20 days on 18 November 2089 at 03:02.

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1110 of Meeus index or 2063 from Brown series.
Length of current 1110 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 40 minutes. It is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 1111 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠38.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠64.1°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 23:05, this is 15 days after last apogee on 13 October 2089 at 11:47 in ♒ Aquarius.

4 days after previous North standstill on 24 October 2089 at 02:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.262°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.316° in the next southern standstill on 6 November 2089 at 03:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 5 days on 2 November 2089 at 12:55 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
