Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 30 October 2092 at 19:28.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1958" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2092 after 13 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1148 of Meeus index or 2101 from Brown series.
Length of current 1148 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 7 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2092. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 1149 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠334°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠350.8°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 20 October 2092 at 09:17 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 November 2092 at 08:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 366 169 km (227 527 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 684 km (224 119 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 24 October 2092 at 08:18 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 November 2092 at 00:18 in ♒ Aquarius.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 21 October 2092 at 20:05 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.498°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.608° in the next southern standstill on 3 November 2092 at 23:31 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 14 November 2092 at 03:04 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
