Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 25 October 2022 at 10:49.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1935" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2022 after 11 days on 8 November 2022 at 11:02.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 282 of Meeus index or 1235 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 9 minutes. It is 49 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 36 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 34 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠299.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠325.5°.
10 days after point of apogee on 17 October 2022 at 10:21 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 29 October 2022 at 14:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 370 489 km (230 211 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 289 km (228 844 mi).
1 day after descending node on 26 October 2022 at 06:30 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 November 2022 at 06:08 in ♉ Taurus.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 16 October 2022 at 06:12 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.473°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.500° at the point of next southern standstill on 30 October 2022 at 01:04 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 11 days on 8 November 2022 at 11:02 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.
