Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 9 November 2083 at 20:15.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2083 after 10 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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1037 of Meeus index or 1990 from Brown series.
Length of current 1037 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 10 minutes. It is 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 1038 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 35 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠343.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠359.3°. 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 10 November 2083 at 19:25 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 25 November 2083 at 20:43 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 365 212 km (226 932 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 373 km (252 508 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 2 November 2083 at 04:57 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 November 2083 at 20:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 12 November 2083 at 02:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.371°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.301° in the next northern standstill on 25 November 2083 at 23:27 in ♊ Gemini.
After 10 days on 24 November 2083 at 08:23 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
