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 ∠1938" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2030 after 14 days on 10 November 2030 at 03:30.
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 20:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 381 of Meeus index or 1334 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 30 minutes is the length of new lunation 381. It is 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 382 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠332.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠349.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
9 days after point of apogee on 16 October 2030 at 13:21 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 October 2030 at 12:07 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 369 785 km (229 774 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 122 km (224 391 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 15 October 2030 at 13:20 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 October 2030 at 03:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 16 October 2030 at 09:43 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.995°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.941° in the next southern standstill on 29 October 2030 at 20:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
