Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1785" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2068 after 13 days on 9 November 2068 at 11:40.
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 04:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 851 of Meeus index or 1804 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 41 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 22 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠209.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠241.5°.
3 days after point of apogee on 23 October 2068 at 04:48 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 7 November 2068 at 20:44 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 401 562 km (249 519 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 864 km (224 230 mi).
13 days after descending node on 13 October 2068 at 09:31 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 27 October 2068 at 18:44 in ♏ Scorpio.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 15 October 2068 at 05:07 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.707°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.659° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 October 2068 at 20:53 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
