Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 8 November 2100 at 20:15.
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 ∠8° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2100 after 1 day on 16 November 2100 at 22:19.
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 1247 of Meeus index or 2200 from Brown series.
Length of current 1247 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 46 minutes. It is 1 hour and 10 minutes shorter than next lunation 1248 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠356.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠11.7°. 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 2 November 2100 at 08:19 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 November 2100 at 05:23 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 405 184 km (251 770 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 471 km (252 569 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 10 November 2100 at 08:11 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 November 2100 at 23:00 in ♌ Leo.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 5 November 2100 at 05:15 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.051°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.950° in the next northern standstill on 19 November 2100 at 13:29 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 16 November 2100 at 22:19 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
