Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1842" and ∠1932".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2076 after 13 days on 10 November 2076 at 21:07.
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 20:50 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 950 of Meeus index or 1903 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 38 minutes is the length of new lunation 950. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes longer than next lunation 951 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠254.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠290.9°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 22 October 2076 at 03:11 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 November 2076 at 20:15 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 389 133 km (241 796 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 114 km (228 735 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 16 October 2076 at 15:38 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 31 October 2076 at 02:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.

10 days after previous North standstill on 18 October 2076 at 10:01 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.937°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.032° in the next southern standstill on 1 November 2076 at 19:09 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
