Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2020 after 14 days on 30 November 2020 at 09:30.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 05:07 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 258 of Meeus index or 1211 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 35 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 1 hour and 35 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 34 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠12.4°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠30.1°.
1 day after point of perigee on 14 November 2020 at 11:48 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 27 November 2020 at 00:29 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 365 057 km (226 836 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 891 km (252 209 mi).
11 days after ascending node on 4 November 2020 at 02:39 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 17 November 2020 at 00:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 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 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.856° at the point of next southern standstill on 18 November 2020 at 11:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
