Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 3 November 2015 at 12:24.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2015 after 16 days on 25 November 2015 at 22:44.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 195 of Meeus index or 1148 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 41 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2015. It is 59 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 4 hours and 57 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 6 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠192.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠220.3°.
1 day after point of apogee on 7 November 2015 at 21:48 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 November 2015 at 20:06 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 404 788 km (251 524 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 14 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 818 km (225 445 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 7 November 2015 at 15:53 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 21 November 2015 at 13:56 in ♓ Pisces.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 31 October 2015 at 09:02 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.241°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.331° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 November 2015 at 00:39 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 2 days on 11 November 2015 at 17:47 in ♏ Scorpio the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
