Moon ♏ Scorpio
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1878" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2040 after 14 days on 18 November 2040 at 19:06.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 18:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 505 of Meeus index or 1458 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 37 minutes is the length of new lunation 505. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes longer than next lunation 506 length.
Length of current synodic month is 7 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 2 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠297°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠323.5°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 27 October 2040 at 22:34 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 November 2040 at 06:17 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 381 755 km (237 212 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 784 km (229 152 mi).
13 days after its ascending node on 22 October 2040 at 06:09 in ♉ Taurus, 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 5 November 2040 at 15:13 in ♏ Scorpio.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 25 October 2040 at 18:35 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.789°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.814° in the next southern standstill on 8 November 2040 at 17:47 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
