Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 4 October 2093 at 18:18.
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 ∠9° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1774" and ∠1923".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2093 after 22 days on 3 November 2093 at 06:46.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1159 of Meeus index or 2112 from Brown series.
Length of current 1159 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 17 minutes. It is 53 minutes longer than next lunation 1160 length.
Length of current synodic month is 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠247.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠284.3°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 1 October 2093 at 02:43 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 October 2093 at 02:43 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 404 086 km (251 087 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 214 km (251 167 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 29 September 2093 at 05:00 in ♑ Capricorn, 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 12 October 2093 at 13:29 in ♋ Cancer.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 17:32 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.080°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.213° in its southern standstill point on 25 October 2093 at 15:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 8 days on 20 October 2093 at 07:33 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
