Moon ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 21 October 2019 at 12:39.
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 ∠10° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2019 after 17 days on 12 November 2019 at 13:34.
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 244 of Meeus index or 1197 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 12 minutes. It is 2 hours and 15 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 3 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 37 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠11.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠28.3°.
Moon is at perigee at 10:41. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 10 October 2019 at 18:29 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 7 November 2019 at 08:37 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 361 316 km (224 511 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 192 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 040 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
6 days after ascending node on 20 October 2019 at 07:28 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 1 November 2019 at 21:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
6 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 20 October 2019 at 08:07 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.947°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.047° at the point of next southern standstill on 2 November 2019 at 00:33 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day on 28 October 2019 at 03:38 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.
