Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 8 November 2020 at 13:46.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1918" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2020 after 20 days on 30 November 2020 at 09:30.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 257 of Meeus index or 1210 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 36 minutes. It is 1 hour and 33 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 8 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 1 minute longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠357°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠12.4°.
9 days after point of apogee on 30 October 2020 at 18:46 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 14 November 2020 at 11:48 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 373 617 km (232 155 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 839 km (222 351 mi).
5 days after ascending node on 4 November 2020 at 02:39 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 17 November 2020 at 00:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 5 November 2020 at 19:30 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.813°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.856° at the point of next southern standstill on 18 November 2020 at 11:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 5 days on 15 November 2020 at 05:07 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.
