Moon* ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 31 October 2014 at 02:48.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1925" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2014 after 1 day on 6 November 2014 at 22:23.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 183 of Meeus index or 1136 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 36 minutes. It is 1 hour and 32 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 52 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 11 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠252.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠289.3°.
2 days after point of perigee on 3 November 2014 at 00:21 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 15 November 2014 at 01:56 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 372 277 km (231 322 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 338 km (251 244 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 03:13 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 19 November 2014 at 08:18 in ♎ Libra.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 28 October 2014 at 01:03 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.539°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.575° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 November 2014 at 23:12 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day on 6 November 2014 at 22:23 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.
