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 ∠9° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1799" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2050 after 15 days on 28 November 2050 at 15:09.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 9 November 2050 at 06:44 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 November 2050 at 05:46 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 398 391 km (247 549 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 851 km (227 951 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 17:21 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 26 November 2050 at 21:02 in ♉ Taurus.

11 days after previous North standstill on 2 November 2050 at 04:32 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.778°. Next 3 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 1 day 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.
