Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1800" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2047 after 3 days on 2 November 2047 at 16:58.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 591 of Meeus index or 1544 from Brown series.
Length of current 591 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 31 minutes. It is 1 hour and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 592 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 56 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠346.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠2.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
10 days after point of perigee on 19 October 2047 at 21:58 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 November 2047 at 16:20 in ♉ Taurus.

6 days after its ascending node on 24 October 2047 at 02:50 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 November 2047 at 13:43 in ♋ Cancer.

7 days after previous South standstill on 22 October 2047 at 17:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.711°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.612° in the next northern standstill on 5 November 2047 at 23:50 in ♊ Gemini.
After 3 days on 2 November 2047 at 16:58 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
