Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 11 October 2030 at 10:47.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1925".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2030 after 24 days on 10 November 2030 at 03:30.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 380 of Meeus index or 1333 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 22 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2030. It is 8 minutes shorter 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 2 hours and 22 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 47 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠310.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠332.4°.
Moon is at apogee at 13:21. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 30 September 2030 at 15:39 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 28 October 2030 at 12:07 in ♏ Scorpio.
This apogee Moon is 405 078 km (251 704 mi) away from Earth. It is 330 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 631 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after descending node on 15 October 2030 at 13:20 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 October 2030 at 03:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 09:43 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠21.995°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-21.941° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 29 October 2030 at 20:28.
In 10 days on 26 October 2030 at 20:17 in ♎ Libra 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.
