Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1923" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2031 after 13 days on 28 November 2031 at 23:18.
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 21:09 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 394 of Meeus index or 1347 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 56 minutes. It is 55 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 48 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 21 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠312.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠334.7°.
9 days after point of apogee on 6 November 2031 at 02:45 in ♌ Leo. 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 17 November 2031 at 22:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 372 666 km (231 564 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 930 km (227 378 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 14 November 2031 at 15:32 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 27 November 2031 at 14:01 in ♉ Taurus.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 2 November 2031 at 15:55 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.333°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-20.336° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 November 2031 at 18:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
