Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2051 after 14 days on 18 November 2051 at 05:06.
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 14:59 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 641 of Meeus index or 1594 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 38 minutes is the length of new lunation 641. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2051. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer than next lunation 642 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠187.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠214.3°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 2 November 2051 at 17:22 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 November 2051 at 10:55 in ♉ Taurus.

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
