Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 25 October 2083 at 14:36.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1932".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2083 after 25 days on 24 November 2083 at 08:23.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 11:06, this is 15 days after last perigee on 13 October 2083 at 13:59 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 10 November 2083 at 19:25 in ♏ Scorpio.
This apogee Moon is 405 765 km (252 131 mi) away from Earth. It is 357 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 944 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
10 days after its ascending node on 18 October 2083 at 19:32 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 November 2083 at 04:57 in ♌ Leo.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 17:47 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠26.436°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-26.371° in its southern standstill point on 12 November 2083 at 02:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 11 days on 9 November 2083 at 20:15 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
