Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 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 first ∠1° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2083 after 24 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 19 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 29 October 2083 at 11:06 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 November 2083 at 19:25 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 404 575 km (251 391 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 487 km (222 753 mi).
11 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 November 2083 at 04:57 in ♌ Leo.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 29 October 2083 at 17:47 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.436°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.371° in the next southern standstill on 12 November 2083 at 02:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 10 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.
