Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 18 October 2028 at 02:57.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1843" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2028 after 9 days on 2 November 2028 at 09:17.
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 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 356 of Meeus index or 1309 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 21 minutes. It is 2 hours and 27 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 2 hours and 23 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 46 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠18.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠37.4°.
6 days after point of perigee on 17 October 2028 at 00:41 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 29 October 2028 at 06:55 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 388 842 km (241 615 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 560 km (252 003 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♑ Capricorn at 23:55 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 15 days later on 7 November 2028 at 12:08 in ♋ Cancer.
At 23:55 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
1 day since the previous standstill on 21 October 2028 at 21:48 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.357°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.251° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 November 2028 at 12:08 in ♊ Gemini.
In 9 days on 2 November 2028 at 09:17 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.
