Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 11 October 2083 at 10:23.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1925".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2083 after 9 days on 25 October 2083 at 14:36.
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 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1036 of Meeus index or 1989 from Brown series.
Length of current 1036 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 52 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2083. It is 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 1037 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠325°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠343.6°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 13 October 2083 at 13:59 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 October 2083 at 11:06 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 364 396 km (226 425 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 765 km (252 131 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 6 October 2083 at 02:37 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 October 2083 at 19:32 in ♑ Capricorn.

1 day after previous South standstill on 15 October 2083 at 18:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.557°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.436° in the next northern standstill on 29 October 2083 at 17:47 in ♊ Gemini.
After 9 days on 25 October 2083 at 14:36 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
