Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 15 October 2092 at 10:25.
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 ∠6° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1794" and ∠1926".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2092 after 28 days on 14 November 2092 at 03:04.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1147 of Meeus index or 2100 from Brown series.
Length of current 1147 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 13 minutes. It is 6 minutes longer than next lunation 1148 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠312.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠334°. 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°).
12 days after point of perigee on 4 October 2092 at 11:15 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 October 2092 at 09:17 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 399 457 km (248 211 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 238 km (251 803 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 9 October 2092 at 23:54 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 October 2092 at 08:18 in ♌ Leo.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 7 October 2092 at 16:31 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.361°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.498° in the next northern standstill on 21 October 2092 at 20:05 in ♋ Cancer.
After 14 days on 30 October 2092 at 19:28 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
