Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days 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 ∠12° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1956" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2074 after 9 days on 3 November 2074 at 19:21.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 6 days 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 21 October 2074 at 21:56 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 November 2074 at 10:36 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 366 546 km (227 761 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 179 km (252 388 mi).
11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 October 2074 at 15:21 in ♑ Capricorn.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 10:55 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-21.522°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠21.659° in its northern standstill point on 8 November 2074 at 20:11 in ♋ Cancer.
After 9 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.
