Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 6 November 2010 at 04:52.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1846" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2010 after 12 days on 21 November 2010 at 17:27.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 134 of Meeus index or 1087 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is equal to the mean synodic month length. It is %hours_to_shortest% and %minutes_to_shortest% longer than the 21st century's shortest and %hours_to_longest% and %minutes_to_longest% shorter than the 21st century's longest synodic months.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠39.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠67°.
5 days after point of perigee on 3 November 2010 at 17:22 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 15 November 2010 at 11:47 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 388 320 km (241 291 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 634 km (251 428 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 20:14 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 24 November 2010 at 06:27 in ♋ Cancer.
At 20:14 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
1 day since the previous standstill on 8 November 2010 at 16:59 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.281°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.238° at the point of next northern standstill on 23 November 2010 at 04:24 in ♊ Gemini.
In 12 days on 21 November 2010 at 17:27 in ♉ Taurus the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
