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 about ∠21° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2050 after 19 days on 28 November 2050 at 15:09.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 628 of Meeus index or 1581 from Brown series.
Length of current 628 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 53 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes longer than next lunation 629 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠212°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠245°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 06:44, this is 11 days after last perigee on 28 October 2050 at 09:08 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 25 November 2050 at 05:46 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 405 118 km (251 729 mi) away from Earth. It is 290 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 591 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
10 days after its descending node on 30 October 2050 at 11:12 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 November 2050 at 17:21 in ♏ Scorpio.

7 days after previous North standstill on 2 November 2050 at 04:32 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.778°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.791° in the next southern standstill on 16 November 2050 at 17:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 5 days on 14 November 2050 at 13:41 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
