Crescent ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 19 October 2030 at 14:50.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1894" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2030 after 16 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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
7 days after point of apogee on 16 October 2030 at 13:21 in ♊ Gemini. 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 28 October 2030 at 12:07 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 378 422 km (235 141 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 122 km (224 391 mi).
8 days after descending node on 15 October 2030 at 13:20 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 October 2030 at 03:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 16 October 2030 at 09:43 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.995°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.941° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 October 2030 at 20:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 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.
