Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2067 after 20 days on 20 November 2067 at 23:50.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 838 of Meeus index or 1791 from Brown series.
Length of current 838 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 46 minutes. It is 55 minutes longer than next lunation 839 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠237.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠274.8°. 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 19 October 2067 at 10:41 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 14 November 2067 at 16:11 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 404 504 km (251 347 mi) away from Earth. It is 904 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 205 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
5 days after its descending node on 25 October 2067 at 14:38 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 November 2067 at 00:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.

5 days after previous North standstill on 26 October 2067 at 02:13 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.333°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.290° in the next southern standstill on 9 November 2067 at 11:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 7 November 2067 at 00:14 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
