Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 20 October 2074 at 11:11.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2074 after 13 days on 3 November 2074 at 19:21.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 925 of Meeus index or 1878 from Brown series.
Length of current 925 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 44 minutes. It is 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 926 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠335.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠352.3°. 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 21:56, this is 12 days after last apogee on 9 October 2074 at 20:38 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 6 November 2074 at 10:36 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 360 248 km (223 848 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 260 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 108 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after its ascending node on 14 October 2074 at 00:03 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 October 2074 at 15:21 in ♑ Capricorn.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 12 October 2074 at 12:44 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.404°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.522° in the next southern standstill on 25 October 2074 at 10:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 3 November 2074 at 19:21 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
